Facebook has launched Peace Dot which shows connections between Facebook users across conflict zones such as India-Pakistan, Greece-Turkey, Israel-Palestine, etc. Basically it is a site that contains links and information centered on the topic of “World Peace”.
I think that Facebook and Stanford are on to something here. I agree with their thought process that conflict can be resolved when people begin to get to know each other and work towards a common goal. World Peace will hopefully no longer be a cliché used by pageant contestants in a few years.
I am optimistic that I’ll live to see that transformation and I bet Facebook will continue to play a huge part in helping make that happen through its technology which facilitates conversations and exchange of ideas!
