Invisible Children have launched the second video as part of their Kony2012 campaign.
From the BlogThe goal of KONY 2012 was to make Joseph Kony famous to inspire the world to contribute to the international effort to stop his atrocities. And in just one month, over 100 million people have seen the film thanks to the support of you and so many others. It has been incredible to see global attention put on Joseph Kony, but fame is only the first step. We need to turn this awareness into informed action.

Yesterday, a fire spread across the web of our social networks when Invisible Children posted a video to spread awareness of Joseph Kony. Beyond the topic of the video itself, it was very interesting to watch people's reactions to it throughout the afternoon, and their "knowledge" of what Invisible Children does and doesn't do. Seeing as word spreads quickly, IC had their own response to such "knowledge" which was also getting around the same social platforms as the video had just done. At the beginning of February, I went a week without social networks, I've been jotting down a lot of thoughts in the weeks that have passed with having it back, but I think yesterday's discussion, or lack...
