Social Media and Social Change: Important or Not?
Following a discussion I had with a friend about the significance of the internet, I wanted to get a little more input on what you guys think about how important it is (or could be) in creating, organizing, and sustaining political movements. I feel like I've heard a lot about how incredibly revolutionary tools like Twitter and Facebook are for bringing people together, but I'm not convinced it isn't overstated.
What do you guys think? Can internet communities band together to stick it to the powerful in a fundamentally new way, or is it just slacktivism that makes you feel good without accomplishing anything?
Proof-reading is totally unnecessary in the digital age now that we have spell cheque.
