One thing I find particularly interesting about Revolution 2.0 is the discussion of Facebook activism, because I feel like that is a conversation that is still ongoing today in the US as well. Specifically, when does online activism help, and when does it simply become slacktivism? Wael Ghonim mentions on page 111 that he is using Facebook to try to attract “regular non-politicized young men and women” via his less “belligerent” Facebook page (which is the word he uses to describe the page “My Name Is Khaled Mohamed Said”). In this way, he seems to be saying that he is not trying to attract activists. However, on the other hand his page and other Facebook pages were used to organize in-person demonstrations including the Silent Stands and the demonstration on January 25. To me, it seems that this at least means that Facebook can have some tangible results. That being said, one of the activists in the YouTube videos we watched on Monday mentioned that it is not Facebook activism that gets things done, nor is it peaceful demonstrations, but rather action–and sometimes violent action at that–that gets results. Is it possible that Facebook and in-person activism are not mutually exclusive, or is it the case that Facebook activism really won’t make a difference?
