Discussion about social change and social movements.

Discussion about social change and social movements.

This is not a research paper, only direct answers to the following questions: First, watch Turkish Sociologist Zeynep Tufekci’s talk https://www.ted.com/talks/zeynep_tufekci_how_the_internet_has_made_social_change_easy_to_organize_hard_to_win#t-820095 and then answer the questions below. Include as much detail as possible (and examples, where applicable). Questions: 1) Do you agree with Zeynep Tufekci that in “embracing digital platforms for activism and politics, (we are) overlooking some of the benefits of doing things the hard way?” Why or why not? 2) How does the mass media cover social problems and social movements? 3) What social movements are important to you? Are there significant social movements happening right now that have caught your interest? What grabs your attention and makes you want to do something about an issue?
