The global internet, including Social Media engagement, is held together by thousands of thin underwater cables.
Social media engagement. So important. Crucial for small businesses. And it’s a wireless thing, right? Wrong.
We think the internet’s in the cloud. But really, it’s in the ocean. These thin underwater cables are the circulatory system of the global internet — while we get our GIFs and videos from fiber optic cables and cellphone towers, high-speed international information is transferred almost entirely under the sea.
Without these cables, no more Twitter, no more Facebook, no more Instagram. No more social media engagement.
