Both of these articles brought up good points about activism and social media. It reminded me a lot about "clicktivism", a term I have heard in other classes. Clicktivism is when by simply "like"ing a page on Facebook, a person feels like they're inspiring significant change when in fact they really aren't doing anything. Mirani's statement "If activism is defined only as taking direct action and protesting on the streets, [Gladwell] might be right" is interesting. Where is the line between activism through social media and activism through physical protest? Do you agree with Mirani's position that activism can include using social media to educate and influence others? Why/why not?
