Green Avatar Day

manga508_biggerToday, Friday June 19th, is a day where you can use the power of social media to further support the people of Iran.  The heavy use of Twitter and Flickr has already helped keep the Iranian government in check.

You can do a small part by colouring your avatar green today.

We don’t mean your Second Life avatar, but your social media avatar, such as through gravatar.com.  Take a peek over at Twitter and you’ll see this in action.

What does it matter?

It helps the people in Iran see that the global community is watching and in support of their efforts. Most of us are very lucky to be in countries where we take many freedoms for granted.
