  5. 5. "Millennials who use social networking sites for civic causes are also more civically engaged in their communities. Although we cannot conclude that belonging to social networking sites alone causes an increase in civic engagement, those who engage online come from diverse economic and educational backgrounds, illustrating the potential of technology in bridging traditional civic gaps. Online platforms provide opportunities for many Americans who may not belong to a formal volunteering organization." "Strangely enough, digital technologies are forcing us to recognize the power of the collective and social." David Bollier, “The Commons as a New Sector of Value-Creation”
