Is social media good for social action?

Online spaces have become rallying points for social action. Social, community and political organisations have turned to the web to organise, coordinate, spread the word and raise funds. From political rallies of hundreds of thousands to local community projects, digital channels have enabled new and existing forms of social action. We explore the ways in which these organisations have succeeded and failed, and ask whether the digital revolution has helped or hindered our ability to effect change offline, and what might we be doing better.
