Reading Revolution 2.0 by Wael Ghonim made me think about how to make social activism as personal as possible to the participants through social media, especially Face Book. In Chapter 3, he talks about writing on the page as a first person and writing about his personal feelings toward Khaled Said. He also mentions the time when his daughter drew a painting of Khaled Said and how she said that some policemen are bad and how that picture brought the participants on the activism to another level of connectedness.
Many times, Facebook is used as a platform to do social activisms but there is a question whether people are participating” or not because they can just like things, post things from their bed, and not really do anything else (not that it is wrong or anything!). But bringing the participants to a personal level allowed and made them to do activisms outside the social media and actually go outside to participate so that the they can show how many people care about Khaled Said, and eventually made a change in the judgment of the police officer who tortured him.
