After all, these days who doesn’t have access to a laptop, Smartphone or tablet The reality is that the vast majority of the public are connected to the internet throuh numerous devices. It is how a growing percentage of the public gets their daily information and news. The key to a fast resolution in any type of enquiry is to get salient and accurate information out to the public at the earliest opportunity, creating critical mass of interest in a small space of time. We have observed this power of the internet a number of times, where positive outcomes have been achieved, via social media sites such as Facebook.
