If you are in need of a good documentary to watch this Thanksgiving weekend, #chicagogirl is highly recommended.
#chicagogirl is a film about Ala'a Basatneh and her use of social media to coordinate the ongoing revolution in Syria, all from her home in the suburbs of Chicago. With Facebook, Twitter, Skype, and other mediums at her disposal, she shows us how powerful and useful social media can be to enact change.
