Uncovering the Activist in You/Social Media for Social Change

A session at BANANA 2

Saturday 26th February, 2011

2:00pm to 3:00pm (PST)

How does one make a difference in the world with only their computer/smartphone at their disposal? Can an everyday person become a social media activist and take the steps to create real, tangible change in this world? Is it even possible? Or is it naive and wishful thinking? In this panel, we will discuss the possibility of this matter and whether or not we can take advantage of the blogging/social media world to make a stand.
