In defense of “slacktivism”: The Human Rights Campaign Facebook logo as digital activism
Stephanie Vie, in First Monday: "This article suggests that even small moves of support, such as changing one’s Facebook status to a memetic image, assist by demonstrating a supportive environment for those who identify with marginalized groups and by drawing awareness to important causes. Often dismissed as 'slacktivism,' I argue instead that the digital activism made possible through social media memes can build awareness of crucial issues, which can then lead to action."
