Communities have the power to make the world a better place. We know this, because we see it happen every day through the work of volunteers, contractors and staff throughout the United Nations system.

The United Nations Development Programme embraces the fact that today’s communities do not only exist in the physical world, but also online. UNDP leadership recognizes the wide reach that communication in online communities can have - both positively and negatively.

Social media is the term for internet-based tools used for publishing, sharing and discussing information, and includes blogs, wikis and social networking sites such as Facebook or LinkedIn.
