What is Social Media Soapbox?

Way before the digital age (about a hundred years or more), the only way people could get attention for what they think is an important issue is to stand on a crate and shout at the top of their lungs.

Wikipedia says: "Throughout the 19th Century and into the 20th, prior to the invention of corrugated fiberboard, manufacturers used wooden crates for the shipment of wholesale merchandise to retail establishments. Discarded containers of every size, well-constructed and sturdy, were readily available in most towns. These "soapboxes" made free and easily portable temporary platforms for street corner speakers attempting to be seen and heard at improvised "outdoor meetings," to which passersby would gather to hear often provocative speeches on religious or political themes."

Yes, this is YET another blog that I am starting and hopefully, it'll stick around longer than the rest of the other blogs I've been trying to give life to.

But instead of writing about what I think about stuff that floats on my newsfeed, I'll attempt to capture what other people are trying to get attention for. It'll be a mix of many things, but hopefully it'll be something that'll move you in some way or help you along your day.
