    [Facebook] Social media and the tragedy in Boston
    I first learned about the bombing on Facebook. Yesterday, two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Then Twitter, then NPR, and then TV.

I’m feeling nostalgic today so I decided to name today’s blog post Knock Three Times on the Ceiling if You Want Me , after Tony Orlando & Dawn ‘s super single that sold six million copies.
