Activism, social media and you

Okay, so here’s a thing that’s been bugging me lately.
It would seem today’s boredom and easy access to social media has combined to form a new generation of activists. I don’t know if there’s a term for this yet (someone has probably already made a far better observation than me), so let’s call them “couch activists”. That’s where the bulk of their activism stems from anyway, reading the internet, then redistributing through the internet. With a phone and an internet connection, you can appropriate all the information in the world; simplify it, mold it and interpret it, and then share it with all your friends. (We’re living in the future, y’all!)
Still, that doesn’t always mean you should!
