Twitter, Facebook, Linked In, all the social media networks that people use to stay connected are powerful in sharing information in an instant. More powerful than newspapers, which take at least 24 hours to print, more powerful than broadcast radio stations, which have limited reach in their airtime.  Is social media replacing traditional communication systems? How will that impact the newspaper industry? How will it affect radio and television industries if everyone gets their news and entertainment from the Internet?
