Digital Activism 101
A Guide to Showing Up, Speaking Out, and Connecting on
Twitter and Facebook
Without Undermining Yourself or Your Cause

Introduction
Right now, longtime activists as well as those who are relatively new to this privilege of
democracy are being extraordinarily challenged. We’re being challenged to rethink and
rebuild coalitions, especially among targeted groups; across generations and even across
party lines. We’re being challenged to rethink strategies and tactics for effective dissent,
persuasive protest, and sustainable movements for radical change.
Good news: we now have powerful social networking tools. Digital activism has become a
thing! But doing it effectively involves knowing much more than how to post a video, create a
meme, or getting a hashtag to trend. At the end of the 1960s, “the personal is political” was a
rallying cry for 2nd wave feminists and student activists. Today, the political has become
intensely personal thanks, in part, to social media. This mixed blessing of social media
underscores the importance of knowing how to use it wisely and well.
In this guide, Digital Activism 101, I zoom in on two essential tools—Twitter and Facebook.
Twitter delivers real-time news and facilitates rapid response in short, ~ 140-character
communications (aka, tweets). Facebook supports slower responses and lengthier
observations (aka, posts). Which should you use? In each section, I provide questions to help
you decide where, when, and how to focus your digital activism plus ProTips to enhance your
effectiveness without doing damage to body, mind, and spirit.
Sections:
 Focus: Your Temperament and Personality
 Focus: Your Call to Digital Activism
 Focus: Your Social Media Presence
 Focus: Special Situations
 Moving Forward
Show Up. Speak Out. Connect.

Focus: Your Temperament and Personality
Social media allows people to deliver opinions swiftly – with varying degrees of clarity and
civility. And let’s get real, shall we? Not everyone has the psychological wherewithal to deal
with a barrage of input, especially when it’s combative, negative or mean-spirited.
 Use this section to:
1) Contemplate how social media aligns (or doesn’t) with your
temperament and personality.
2) Learn how to mitigate and manage social media-induced stress.
For Consideration and Contemplation
Are you:
 more of an extrovert or introvert? (Note: Introverts tend to do better on social media
because it allows them (us!) to better manage amount and duration of interaction.)
 energized by being on the frontlines or more comfortable supporting those who are?
Are you emotionally equipped to deal with:
 aggravation and frustration?
 apprehension, anxiety, fear?
Are you psychologically equipped to handle:
 triggers for abuse, assault, and neglect?
 attacks on personality and/or professional competency?
 challenges to commitment, faith, values?
Still want to participate in digital activism?
Great! And…you’ll need to cultivate conscious awareness of
your well-being and know when to take a break—or opt-out altogether.
ProTips for Managing Social Media-Induced Stress
Self-care for Body, Mind, and Spirit
 Establish a time (or times) to log online daily or weekly.
 Determine a timeframe for how long to stay on Twitter and/or Facebook
during your online session.
 Create a “To Do” list for what you intend to do while online, then log off when
you’ve completed your tasks.
 Set a timer or use a browser extension to stay out of digital rabbit holes:
 www.stayfocusedapp.me
 For Facebook: Todobook
 www.tomato-timer.com
 www.marinaratimer.com

 Explore options for tools that temporarily block online distractions:
 “10 Online Tools for Better Attention & Focus”
 Explore options for online tools to manage what you see on Twitter and
Facebook:
 For Facebook: http://socialfixer.com/
 For Twitter: https://tweetdeck.twitter.com/
 Plan daily breaks of at least 20-30 minutes to do something restorative—not
online.
 Observe at least one day of Sabbath rest from digital engagement during the
week.
Self-care for body:
 Stay hydrated.
 “No, you don’t need eight glasses of water day”
 Rest your eyes for at least 5 minutes after looking at monitors/screens for
more than 20 minutes.
 Invest in glasses specifically for computer use, glare reduction filters, and
perhaps a new monitor.
 “Computer Eye Strain: 10 Steps for Relief”
 Consider using voice recognition software (e.g., Dragon Naturally Speaking) to
reduce stress on fingers, hands, and wrists.
 Build in regular exercise and encounters with fresh air.
Self-care for mind and spirit:
 Review and revise Privacy and Safety/Security settings on Twitter and
Facebook.
 On Twitter: Learn the difference between muting and blocking—and do either
or both:
 Muting: https://support.twitter.com/articles/20171399
 Blocking: https://support.twitter.com/articles/117063 and
https://support.twitter.com/articles/20172663
 On Facebook: Learn the difference between unfollowing, blocking, and
restricting—and do any or all:
 “How to Block Someone on Facebook”
 “How do I follow or unfollow a profile or Page?”
 On Facebook: Give yourself permission to leave online conversations or to
shut-down/delete posts after trying any or all of the following:
 Clarifying your rules of engagement: “Please feel free to post non-
partisan resources. Anything else will be removed.”
 Providing a warning in public or via the back channel: “I’m not
comfortable with tone of comments here. Let’s restore this
conversation to civility.”
 Taking it offline: “Let’s continue this conversation either by email or
phone. Which would you prefer?”

 Resist every temptation to get sucked into an online debate/shouting match
with Internet trolls. (Note: Not everyone who disagrees with you is a troll, it’s
a matter of tone and style.)
 “10 Types of Internet Trolls You’ll Meet Online”
 Report online hate speech or other forms of abuse:
 For Twitter: “An Update on Safety”
 For Facebook: “Reporting Abuse”
 Find and follow a few Twitter accounts and Facebook pages for comic relief or
encounters with beauty.
 If you’re active on social media, let friends/followers know if/when you plan to
sign off for an extended period of time.
 Seek help from a licensed therapist if digital activism is generating anger,
anxiety, depression, fear, or despair.
 Meet with a spiritual director if digital activism is challenging your faith or
sense of purpose (aka, vocation, call).
 Create a support team of trusted friends who know your intentions and goals
for digital activism. Ask them to provide loving care if they see you becoming
or being:
 angry  mean-spirited
 argumentative  obstructionistic
 arrogant  privileged
 dismissive  rude
 hostile  trivializing
 hypersensitive  unapproachable
And to provide affirmation and encouragement when they see you being:
 available  kind
 caring  knowledgeable
 comforting  open
 compassionate  resourceful
 encouraging  sympathetic
 generous  trustworthy

Focus: Your Call to Digital Activism
Anyone with a smartphone, never mind a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer, can
participate in social and political causes. Once again, let’s get real. Not everyone is willing or
physically able to attend marches, participate in door-to-door voter registration, or stand
witness in public places, etc. Nor is everyone qualified to provide pro bono legal or medical
assistance.
 Use this section to:
1) Contemplate your goals, passions, and areas of expertise.
2) Learn ProTips to establish expertise and credibility.
For Consideration and Contemplation
Goals for Digital Activism
To what extent are you participating to do any—or all?—of these things:
 Share information and/or resources (i.e., content curation).
 Have conversations about news and issues.
 Discover and build community among like-minded/hearted people.
 Organize and/or promote action (e.g., marches, petition signing, calling Congress).
 Provide support, comfort, and care to distressed people.
 Express anger, disappointment, frustration.
 Gain recognition for your leadership.
 Seek acknowledgement for your expertise.
Passions and Areas of Expertise
 What are your top three areas of expertise?
 How are you qualified to claim expertise in your top areas?
 What are your top three areas of social/political concern?
 What’s your #1 passion relative to social/political activism? How about #2?
 How do people on social media perceive your identification or involvement with a
social group/political party?
Time Availability
 Will digital activism be an add-on to other responsibilities or become a significant
part of your work?
 How much time each day or week can you realistically devote to digital activism?
Clear about your call to participate in digital activism?
Great! And…you’ll need to establish
your expertise plus maintain your credibility.

ProTips for Establishing Expertise and Credibility
 Limit your areas of focus – and stay focused on them.
 Retweet and share content from credible sources. How do you know they’re
credible? See who they follow and who follows them. Review their timeline
content.
 Retweet and share credible content. When in doubt, check:
 Snopes: www.snopes.com
 Follow on Twitter: @factcheckarmy
 “Get Your Facts Right—6 Fact Checking Websites That Help You Know
the Truth”
 Before retweeting (Twitter) or sharing (Facebook):
 Click through to open links.
 Read content (e.g., reportage, commentary).
 Ask yourself:
 Does this need to be RT’d/shared yet again?
 Does this need to be RT’d/shared by me?
 Does this need to be RT’d/shared right now?
 On Twitter: Add commentary to help followers understand why you’re retweeting
something by using the “Quote Tweet” function.
 On Facebook: Add commentary to help friends understand why you’re sharing
something by completing “Say something about this…”
 On Twitter: Apply for a (blue badge) verified account:
 https://support.twitter.com/articles/119135
 http://www.wikihow.com/Get-a-Verified-Account-on-Twitter
 Revise social media bios to include “activist,” if that’s a key feature of your online
identity.
 Participate in Tweetchats and Facebook Live events/conversations in your areas
of interest and expertise.
 Twitter Chat Schedule (from tweetreports.com)
Travel much? Know folks who do?
Checkout this info from @ACLU

Focus: Your Social Media Presence
Doesn’t matter if you’re relatively new to social media or an experienced user, I urge you to
periodically review and assess your presence on Twitter and Facebook.
 Use this section to:
1) Contemplate your social media audience.
2) Learn ProTips for reaching your intended audience and social media
etiquette.
For Consideration and Contemplation
About Your Social Media Audience (Friends/Followers)
 With which people and organizations do you typically engage?
 To what extent can the people who follow you affect your future (e.g., career path)?
 Which people and organizations typically reach out to you?
 What percentage of your current audience shares your activism goals and
perspectives?
 What percentage of your audience will be upset/offended by your activism?
 How will you know if it’s time to reach out to a new and perhaps different group of
people?
About Your Communication Style and Preferences
 Are you willing and able to articulate your point(s) within the ~140 character limit
established by Twitter?
 Are you more inclined to write in paragraphs rather than short sentences?
 Do you prefer being able to follow a conversation thread or can you follow what may
seem to be disconnect comments?
 Do you want to engage in conversations or want to focus on providing
content/resources?
 Do you prefer focusing on one topic/ conversation at a time or can you conceptually
multitask?
 Is your online experience significantly enhanced by seeing and/or sharing visual
content?
Ready to build or rebuild your presence
on Twitter and/or Facebook?
Great! And…you’ll need to learn how these platforms work and
how to adjust to changes in their functionality.

ProTips for Reaching Your Intended Audience
 Twitter:
 Plug keywords (e.g., environment, immigration, women’s rights) or recognized
hashtags (e.g., #resist, #DACA, #ScienceMarch) into Twitter’s search function
to find people.
 Use lists—creating ones to organize followers into categories and following
existing ones: https://support.twitter.com/articles/76460
 Discover and use recognized hashtags.
 Facebook:
 Find groups of like-minded/hearted people.
 For more privacy, join a “Closed” group.
 For optimal privacy, join a “Secret” group.
 Use lists to organize friends into categories:
 https://www.facebook.com/help/204604196335128/
ProTips for Social Media Etiquette
 Use H/T (hat tip) to acknowledge others, especially when RT’ng their content.
 On Facebook: check with people before tagging them in posts.
 On Twitter: for replies remove @name of anyone no longer part of a conversation.
 Use the “back channel” to call out and explore what might seem like an
appropriate online behavior.
 Twitter: Direct Message (DM)
 Facebook: Private Message
 Email
 Phone (Yes, the phone!)
 On Twitter: Alert followers to impending Tweet chat participation, Tweet storms,
or other activities that will clog their Twitter streams.
 On Twitter: Limit hashtags (#) to no more than three per tweet.

civil rights and liberties.

Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act:

ProTips for Clergy and Workers in Faith/Mission-Based Organizations
 Know your denominational guidelines regarding public participation in or advocacy

Moving Forward
Powerful contributions can come from individuals but social and political change is always a
group effort. These days, people meet online and form groups, some of which evolve into
communities without anyone ever meeting face-to-face. At least not immediately. In reality,
those of us with longtime experience have observed—and experienced—with great delight
how often online interactions morph into deeply enriching relationships, personal as well as
professional. And, political.
Social media has become a valuable way to supplement, not necessarily replace, interpersonal
and group engagement. Thanks to social networking platforms, you can participate in your
local community as well as national actions. Learning how to use social media at its and to
your best advantage makes support and encouragement as likely to come from your neighbor
as it is from someone living thousands of miles away. How will you move forward?

Digital Activism 101: A Guide to Showing Up, Speaking Out, and Connecting on Twitter and Facebook

  • 1. Digital Activism 101 A Guide to Showing Up, Speaking Out, and Connecting on Twitter and Facebook Without Undermining Yourself or Your Cause Created by: Meredith Gould (@meredithgould) meredith@meredithgould.com www.meredithgould.com Introduction Right now, longtime activists as well as those who are relatively new to this privilege of democracy are being extraordinarily challenged. We’re being challenged to rethink and rebuild coalitions, especially among targeted groups; across generations and even across party lines. We’re being challenged to rethink strategies and tactics for effective dissent, persuasive protest, and sustainable movements for radical change. Good news: we now have powerful social networking tools. Digital activism has become a thing! But doing it effectively involves knowing much more than how to post a video, create a meme, or getting a hashtag to trend. At the end of the 1960s, “the personal is political” was a rallying cry for 2nd wave feminists and student activists. Today, the political has become intensely personal thanks, in part, to social media. This mixed blessing of social media underscores the importance of knowing how to use it wisely and well. In this guide, Digital Activism 101, I zoom in on two essential tools—Twitter and Facebook. Twitter delivers real-time news and facilitates rapid response in short, ~ 140-character communications (aka, tweets). Facebook supports slower responses and lengthier observations (aka, posts). Which should you use? In each section, I provide questions to help you decide where, when, and how to focus your digital activism plus ProTips to enhance your effectiveness without doing damage to body, mind, and spirit. Sections:  Focus: Your Temperament and Personality  Focus: Your Call to Digital Activism  Focus: Your Social Media Presence  Focus: Special Situations  Moving Forward Show Up. Speak Out. Connect.
  • 2. ________________________________________________________________ Page 2 of 10 © 2017 Meredith Gould | Please Share With Attribution Focus: Your Temperament and Personality Social media allows people to deliver opinions swiftly – with varying degrees of clarity and civility. And let’s get real, shall we? Not everyone has the psychological wherewithal to deal with a barrage of input, especially when it’s combative, negative or mean-spirited.  Use this section to: 1) Contemplate how social media aligns (or doesn’t) with your temperament and personality. 2) Learn how to mitigate and manage social media-induced stress. For Consideration and Contemplation Are you:  more of an extrovert or introvert? (Note: Introverts tend to do better on social media because it allows them (us!) to better manage amount and duration of interaction.)  energized by being on the frontlines or more comfortable supporting those who are? Are you emotionally equipped to deal with:  aggravation and frustration?  apprehension, anxiety, fear? Are you psychologically equipped to handle:  triggers for abuse, assault, and neglect?  attacks on personality and/or professional competency?  challenges to commitment, faith, values? Still want to participate in digital activism? Great! And…you’ll need to cultivate conscious awareness of your well-being and know when to take a break—or opt-out altogether. ProTips for Managing Social Media-Induced Stress Self-care for Body, Mind, and Spirit  Establish a time (or times) to log online daily or weekly.  Determine a timeframe for how long to stay on Twitter and/or Facebook during your online session.  Create a “To Do” list for what you intend to do while online, then log off when you’ve completed your tasks.  Set a timer or use a browser extension to stay out of digital rabbit holes:  www.stayfocusedapp.me  For Facebook: Todobook  www.tomato-timer.com  www.marinaratimer.com
  • 3. ________________________________________________________________ Page 3 of 10 © 2017 Meredith Gould | Please Share With Attribution  Explore options for tools that temporarily block online distractions:  “10 Online Tools for Better Attention & Focus”  Explore options for online tools to manage what you see on Twitter and Facebook:  For Facebook: http://socialfixer.com/  For Twitter: https://tweetdeck.twitter.com/  Plan daily breaks of at least 20-30 minutes to do something restorative—not online.  Observe at least one day of Sabbath rest from digital engagement during the week. Self-care for body:  Stay hydrated.  “No, you don’t need eight glasses of water day”  Rest your eyes for at least 5 minutes after looking at monitors/screens for more than 20 minutes.  Invest in glasses specifically for computer use, glare reduction filters, and perhaps a new monitor.  “Computer Eye Strain: 10 Steps for Relief”  Consider using voice recognition software (e.g., Dragon Naturally Speaking) to reduce stress on fingers, hands, and wrists.  Build in regular exercise and encounters with fresh air. Self-care for mind and spirit:  Review and revise Privacy and Safety/Security settings on Twitter and Facebook.  On Twitter: Learn the difference between muting and blocking—and do either or both:  Muting: https://support.twitter.com/articles/20171399  Blocking: https://support.twitter.com/articles/117063 and https://support.twitter.com/articles/20172663  On Facebook: Learn the difference between unfollowing, blocking, and restricting—and do any or all:  “How to Block Someone on Facebook”  “How do I follow or unfollow a profile or Page?”  On Facebook: Give yourself permission to leave online conversations or to shut-down/delete posts after trying any or all of the following:  Clarifying your rules of engagement: “Please feel free to post non- partisan resources. Anything else will be removed.”  Providing a warning in public or via the back channel: “I’m not comfortable with tone of comments here. Let’s restore this conversation to civility.”  Taking it offline: “Let’s continue this conversation either by email or phone. Which would you prefer?”

  • 10. ________________________________________________________________ Page 10 of 10 © 2017 Meredith Gould | Please Share With Attribution Moving Forward Powerful contributions can come from individuals but social and political change is always a group effort. These days, people meet online and form groups, some of which evolve into communities without anyone ever meeting face-to-face. At least not immediately. In reality, those of us with longtime experience have observed—and experienced—with great delight how often online interactions morph into deeply enriching relationships, personal as well as professional. And, political. Social media has become a valuable way to supplement, not necessarily replace, interpersonal and group engagement. Thanks to social networking platforms, you can participate in your local community as well as national actions. Learning how to use social media at its and to your best advantage makes support and encouragement as likely to come from your neighbor as it is from someone living thousands of miles away. How will you move forward?
