  35. 35. In Summary
  36. 36. Three Mantras of Social Media  The future has already arrived. It’s just not evenly distributed yet.  Technology determines what is possible and what isn’t; society chooses what happens and what doesn’t.  The tools are transient; the value system is here to stay.
  37. 37. Digital Activism in Three Steps  Listen/ Understand: Aggregate public opinion and flag flash points.  Engage/ Energize: Use virality, modularity and granularity to build a grassroots movement.  Bridge: Use both new media and mainstream media to translate online engagement into offline action.
