As we all know Social Media is growing day by day and getting even Stronger & Stronger with billions of people connecting with each other. Now social Media tools like FACEBOOK, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM & Others are not just tools to interact but these now help a lot of people, personal & Commercial.
We all are evident of the fact that how Facebook & Twitter had helped identifying a lot of people over the internet. A Similar story has come to notice when a Girl posted her story on Mark Zuckerberg’s post last night. It was a story about how Facebook had helped her not only to regain her lost memory but also helped her to identify and re-unite with her family, which lost her daughter and thought she was dead 12 years ago.
Last night when Mark Zuckerberg posted a photo relating to his speech at the UN Summit, a girl Named Farah Hachem Commented her story. She stated :
“I was less than six years old at year 2000 when the war was coming to an end in my country , me and my family were seeking protection in a shelter when it got bombed and I got wounded and took by the Red Cross to get the necessary treatment but didn’t find my family again … I lost my memory and didn’t remember anything …
I then got adopted by a social institution that takes care of children that lost their family and stayed under their care until the Year 2012 …
Year 2012 was the most important year in my life , it was the year that I got into face book and joined a group that share the 2000 war events , a group that have many cases like me . I began to see post and read comments everyday but didn’t really have any specific intention other than just knowing more about the war the made me lose my family . As I continued to log into face book daily I started to remember things , and memories came to my head so the social institution bought me a doctor to help me…
I saw a post in a group about a mother that lost her girl in that war at the same place that I got wounded , and she was saying her girls name is “Farah” … which is my name . Sadly my mum was saying in that post that her girl (me) died in that bomb as any other person in my family . For 12 years they didn’t see me , sure they’ll think I’m dead . I told my doctor about this post and told him that I have a feeling that this is my mum , he communicated with her at her FACE BOOK account and met her and …. Here I am today , writing this while I’m in my bed , in my room , in my house . The house of my family , the family that Face Book gathered us together again .
I’m Farah Hashem thanking you very much dear Mark .
I hope you read this post that I wrote not for me , but for people to know the greatness of this social media network that’s called Face Book . The media always focus on the disadvantages of the face book forgetting it’s big advantages .
Sir mark , I’m gunna name my first child Mark ! and my family now celebrates the 4th of January every year in the memory of establishing Faceboook !
Some people would mock us for this but no one can feel the way we do except the ones that went through it .
Eventually I know my comment will be between thousands of other posts on your page and you may not read it , but writing this and having the chance to let you know how much I’m thankful for you is better then doing nothing at all .
Mark Zuckerberg , I love you , My family loves you . Thank you very much“
And she posted a picture thanking Marz Zuckerberg & Facebook for coming to her rescue and helping her to reunite with her family.
Soon Mark Zuckerberg noticed & read the story in the comments and didn’t hesitate to thank her for sharing her story.
