Have social networking sites increased public awareness of graphic design?

For example when the 2012 Olympic logo was released it sparked a mass media frenzy, the public's true response was visible to the world. Many situations involve peoples opinions on brands but please list other situations in which a greater awareness of design is gained through a social network.

    Sep 26 2011: Not necessarily graphic design, but consumers are being vocal about the designs brands and corporations introduce. The Gap felt the power of social media when it came to a logo revision that they tried to do. People hated it and were very outspoken about it. Within a day or two (maybe less) The Gap scrapped the new logo and went back to the old.
