Web Enabled Activism

Developments in social media have enabled activism to be more viral than ever

Description - Bloggers, social media and web culture are having a tremendous impact on the viral nature of activism. This has resulted in the launch of a number of new charities and initiatives. For example, although Movember was launched three years ago, this year it became viral through blogosphere, facebook and the web 2.0 development on Movember.com.

Implications - Because web activism has the capability for international reach, online campaigns could prove much more in the future. Web activism is increasingly viral, due much in part to social networking sites.
