Never Say Never to Social Media! Even Brad Pitt Bowed to Google+

Those of you who still think social media is a about poking, wake up!

Even, Mr. private Brad Pitt finally bowed to power of social media. He just set up his page on Google+. Given his passion for New Orleans, not surprisingly, his first social media post was about his Make It Right venture in New Orleans.

“Making a big announcement later this week about an event in New Orleans in March to raise money to build safe, sustainable homes for disadvantaged families and disabled veterans.

The big announcement released last night is this:
“On March 10 at Hyatt Regency New Orleans, Brad Pitt and Ellen DeGeneres will host “A Night to Make It Right” with special guests Randy Jackson and performances by Rihanna, Sheryl Crow, Seal and local favorite Dr. John and friends. The benefit gala will raise vital funds for the completion of 150 environmentally friendly homes.
