You may be thinking that none of this matters to your business because you sell cosmetics, or you are a faith-based charity. Correction. The advertising space alongside these reports, whether that be on social media, TV or in the paper, is astronomical because it brings an excessive amount of viewers.

We’re on board. Diversity strengthens us all & today we celebrate #MarriageEquality & the landmark #SCOTUS decision.
Love matters. Happiness matters. #AcceptanceMatters #Marriage #Equality
These simple statements do wondrous things for their public rapport. Whether you decide to tweet around the topic, or just general Twitter ramblings, with large events ‘breaking the internet’, there will be a lot of people online, scrolling their feeds.
Be sure to be seen!
