Twitter, Facebook, and social activism : The New Yorker.

This is an article written by Malcolm Gladwell of The New Yorker called, “Small Change: Why the Revolution Will Not Be Tweeted”.  This is interesting because I have often thought, as I shared something on my Facebook or even through this blog, of how diluted  individual causes and passions have become on the net.  It is very hard to sift through EVERY cause that EVERY friend is concerned with.  We spread ourselves too thin because signing that petition is one click away.  I don’t even remember all the petitions I signed.  I meant it at the moment though.  Give this article a read and leave some comments, opinions, or thoughts!!
