Welcome to our So.Act Blog!

In the following weeks, we want to shine a light on current trends in social media activism, critically examine how different activists use social media, explore how they interact with their audiences, and discuss what their (potential) impacts are in the offline world.

Every week you can expect several interesting posts on projects and movements from around the world. With every post we will gain new insights into how social media connect with urgent issues in the fields of international development and social change, and hopefully create a lively discussion on how activist movements are framed in the age of social media communications.

What can we as Communication for Development practitioners, students, and professionals, as academics, as engaged citizens and everyday users of social media learn from the structures and processes behind social media activism?
