New scientific Discoveries bring social networks to another level
There were two significant discoveries over the last two weeks that have made a big impression on many people. The first one was made by an aspiring archeologist who happen to use Google maps to locate the site. This marks the beginning of what may become a new trend in archeology discoveries. The other one occured more like a fluke. A photographer happened to snap some pics for his collection of an unknown species. He’s just a photographer so he wouldn’t know he was in front of an undiscovered insect. An entomologist discovered these pictures on social media photo sharing site Flickr.
Internet browsing may be now as useful as going on the field to make new discoveries. Now everybody can help with science as finding new things and posting them on these sites might give real profesionals the chance of stumbling in to them and maybe discovering new life forms or archeological sites.
