Week 6 Comment: The Internet’s Effect on Activism

Solomon’s post: Week 4 Link: Sorry, Walmart

My comment: You are right in that the internet has revolutionized activism and advocacy. Social media especially enhances the way we communicate and express ourselves. It’s nice to see every day people get involved with causes they care about or be able to voice their opinion. I can only imagine how different it was back then. Unfortunately, not all petitions have had major success, but at least with this one, the developer decided to listen to the people by backing off. This is one instance where the community is speaking and those in control are listening.
