A Good Use for Social Media?

Alright, so I have complained a lot here and elsewhere about "social" media making us less social. This article shows, in a strange way, however, that it can be used to bring people together.

Sure, pillow fights, zombie walks, etc, are not the kinds of events I would hope people would get involved in (and very specific demographics go to these events), but it certainly makes me feel better about humanity. At least in these days of customizable social spaces, we still get together with strangers to beat one another senseless.
