How Social media gave voice to
the voiceless people
 Social media platforms allow marginalized individuals to share their experiences, thoughts,
and perspectives with a global audience. This can help them raise awareness about issues
that affect them and draw attention to their causes.
 Community Building: Social media facilitates the creation of virtual communities where
marginalized individuals can connect with like-minded people. This sense of belonging and
support can be empowering and provide a safe space for discussions and activism.
 Education and Awareness: Social media can be used as an educational tool. Marginalized
communities can access information, resources, and knowledge that may not be readily
available in their offline lives. They can also share educational content and raise awareness
about their unique challenges.
 Advocacy and Activism: Marginalized people can use social media to mobilize for change and
advocate for their rights. Campaigns, petitions, and movements can gain momentum through
online platforms, drawing attention to critical issues and pressuring authorities to take action.
 Economic Opportunities: Social media can serve as a platform for marginalized individuals to
showcase their talents, skills, and businesses. It can be a marketplace where they can promote their
products or services, potentially reaching a wider customer base.
 Access to Support Networks: Many social media platforms host support groups and networks that
cater to the specific needs of marginalized communities. This can provide emotional support,
guidance, and resources that might not be readily available in their physical communities.
 Political Engagement: Social media can enable marginalized people to engage in political
discussions, voice their concerns, and connect with politicians or advocacy groups. They can also
get informed about elections and voting procedures.
 Reducing Stigma and Stereotypes: By sharing their stories and experiences, marginalized individuals
can challenge stereotypes and reduce social stigmas associated with their identities or
backgrounds.
 Skill Development: Access to educational content and tutorials on social media can help individuals
develop new skills, which can be particularly beneficial for marginalized people seeking
employment or career advancement.
 Global Collaboration: Social media allows marginalized individuals to collaborate with people from
diverse backgrounds, regions, and cultures. This can lead to the exchange of ideas and solutions to
common challenges.
Examples of how
social media has
empowered the
voiceless people
Real life events
#BlackLivesMatter
 Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an
international activist movement,
originating in the African-
American community, that
campaigns against violence and
systemic racism toward black
people.
 The Black Lives Matter movement
gained prominence and
widespread support through
social media. It provided a
platform for black individuals to
share their experiences with racial
discrimination, police violence,
and other injustices. The
movement has led to global
awareness and discussions about
racial inequality.
LGBTQ+ Activism
 Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT)
movements are social movements that
advocate for LGBT people in society. Although
there is not a primary or an overarching
central organization that represents all LGBT
people and their interests, numerous LGBT
rights organizations are active worldwide.
 On August 11th 1992 the first widely known
protest for gay rights was held outside the
police headquarters in New Delhi. Since then
the LGBTQIA+ movement has been gaining
speed especially after the landmark judgement
in 2018 when the Supreme Court
decriminalised homosexuality.
 Social media has been instrumental in
advancing LGBTQ+ rights and visibility. It has
provided a space for individuals to share their
coming-out stories, engage in discussions
about LGBTQ+ issues, and mobilize for
change.
#MeToo
 The MeToo movement in India
began in 2018. It gained
momentum after actress
Tanushree Dutta accused Nana
Patekar of sexual harassment in
the Bollywood entertainment
industry. The movement brought
attention to sexual harassment
and assault in India, and
encouraged women to speak up
against their harassers.
 The #MeToo movement emerged
on social media as a platform for
survivors of sexual harassment
and assault to share their stories.
It empowered many individuals
to speak out against their
perpetrators and hold them
accountable.
Arab Spring Uprisings
 The Arab Spring or the First Arab
Spring was a series of anti-
government protests, uprisings
and armed rebellions that spread
across much of the Arab world in
the early 2010s. It began in
Tunisia in response to corruption
and economic stagnation.
 Social media platforms like
Twitter and Facebook played a
crucial role in organizing and
spreading information during the
Arab Spring uprisings in 2010-
2012. Citizens in countries like
Tunisia and Egypt used these
platforms to share their
grievances and coordinate
protests, ultimately leading to
significant political change.
Disability Advocacy
 Disability advocacy is the act of
promoting, protecting, and
defending the human rights of
people with disabilities. The goal
of disability advocacy is to ensure
that people with disabilities can
fully participate in the
community.
 Social media has given a voice to
individuals with disabilities who
often face discrimination and
barriers. The #ActuallyAutistic
and #CripTheVote hashtags, for
example, have provided
platforms for those with
disabilities to advocate for their
rights and educate the public.
Conclusi
on
 Each type of media has its unique characteristics and advantages. The distinction between
traditional and new media is becoming increasingly blurred as digital technology
continues to transform how information is produced, distributed, and consumed. The
choice of media type depends on the audience, purpose, and the
message being conveyed.
 examples demonstrate the power of social media in giving a voice to marginalized and
underrepresented groups. It has not only allowed them to share their stories but also
mobilize for change, raise awareness, and hold those in power accountable
for their actions.
 it's important to acknowledge that social media is not a panacea. It also comes with
challenges, including online harassment, privacy concerns, and the potential for echo
chambers. Moreover, not everyone has equal access to the internet or the resources
needed to effectively use social media. Therefore, while social media can provide
opportunities, it's just one piece of a broader strategy for empowering
marginalized communities.
