This article shows things about Africa's religion because they still practice Islam and Christianity on consistent bases.

 

Kaleigh & Lauren:)'s curator insight, April 13, 2014 10:47 PM

Religion:  Religion in africa is different than some might see.  Christian and Islam are just among the minorities.  Traditional African Religion is much more than some give credit for.  10% of the population still practice this religion full time.  Their expressions are found in oral traditions.  They believe in a supreme being who created and ordered the world, but experienced as distant and unreachable.

We chose this article because it demonstrated the  growth of social interactions between countries, and people within the internet. This article talks about the growing opportunities that South America has to,"upgrade their software," and move to digital networking, phones and computers. On seeing that South America has little interaction  with computers or the internet compare that with what experience the US has with these things and what our society would look like without it?

This article falls under the  Social category, while explaining the connections between the arrival of new technology in Africa and the economy.
