This week we were asked the question: Can online social activism be meaningful and worthwhile?
I 100% think that it can be and it definitely has. I'd like to compare this question with one someone else may have. Is it possible to have an intellectual and meaningful conversation online through social media such as twitter? To some it would seem obvious that you cannot do such things. However, I know through experience that is not the case. For example with the Sasked chat that I participated in. It was a fully online chat through a social media platform. Now to go back to the first question. As long as you have the right people who are participating and are engaged with what you are trying to do it is possible to have meaningful activism online. And you see examples of this online all the time. Like with people starting online charities that people can donate to or groups that fight for something. Anything is possible as long as you have the right people involved.
