Digital Activism

Digital media technologies have been credited with aiding revolutions as well as activist groups both large and small. These technologies include blogs written on personal computers, crowdsourcing mobile apps, and social media including Facebook, Twitter and beyond. While digital media technologies generate opportunities for individual and collective action, they raise concerns about slacktivism and return on resource investment. Our CDMS researchers investigate these questions by engaging with digital activists as well as with the technologies generating all the excitement.
