Duration: 05:19
Program: World Business
Broadcast Date: Jul. 22, 2011

World Business: The power of the online world is liberating. Social networking sites made the uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East possible; bloggers can make or break new businesses and sites like Facebook and Twitter connect people across the world. The huge quantities of information carried on such sites can be very valuable to companies which can use the data; and some companies are coming up with innovate software and techniques to do just that.
