  14. 14. John Olson · Directed Research 2013 · Tom Klinkowstein I want to explore the correlation between user-created visual content and activism among millennials through digital social media Because I want to see how social activism is different for digital natives when compared to past generations To create a system to better utilize user-created content as a tool for social and political engagement
