  5. 5. “Outraged Nigerians took to social media with the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls, which swept around the world in more than three million retweets. Even Michelle Obama, America’s First Lady, posed holding a placard with the hashtag... But one year later, #BringBackOurGirls hasn’t brought the girls home…. It’s a sad illustration of the limitations of “clicktivism” (Kielburger, Craig and Marc)

Photo by Ian Sane - Creative Commons Attribution License https://www.flickr.com/photos/31246066@N04 Created with Haiku Deck - Facebook activism amplifies harmful underpinning of capitalism Social media platforms transform social issues into cultural capital - Ossues become labels of political alignment and lend an appearance of social awareness attached to a digitally curated self. They become a means to the end of social gain, rather than of social change - the end-goal of this online “activism” is typically limited to raising awareness. As valuable as it is to widen people’s understanding of the world, no tangible change flows from awareness alone. - Social media is fast, easy, cheap and, in one sense, democratic. social media sites are profit (Mazie, Steven)
