As always, CTV Edmonton's Linda Hoang is at the top of her game when it comes II social media. Her Twitter handle of @Lindork is promoting @FarmOn & Www.FarmOn.Com which show the struggles that working farmers & their young family's go through in Alberta on a daily basis. Its not just about keeping their farms running, but keeping their kids focused as they go to school & help out on the farm. Plus, the site is about how great farm folks are & how difficult it can be to keep the next generation of family members wanting to stay running the farm rather than say selling out to a corporate giant (like Monsanto) IV instance.
Linda wants computer viwers to view the live-stream of viewer posts at: #FARMVOICES & keep track of the important companion website of Www.FarmOn.Com/FarmVoices. If social media can help inspire change & make the lives of farmers better, then I am all for it!
