Social Media as a Force for Social Good
In 2011, social media platforms sparked and accelerated the Arab Spring – the largest modern day transcontinental revolution of our time. The regime fell in an astounding 18 days due to the speed with which revolutionaries spread the word through social media. Facebook served as a medium to organize forces, while Twitter helped to spread the message
This same sort of social media mobilization emerged during the ice bucket challenge of 2014, which led to donations exceeding $1.35 million for the ALS Association.
