About (The Blog)

Through this blog, I plan to explore the digital phenomenon that is Hashtag Activism by looking into some of the online movements and campaigns that have happened over the past four years. While some may have fallen into the trap of simply becoming a fad (often owing to the trend-like nature of the hashtag), others have created global awareness- with some even achieving mass mobilisation and real change beyond the social networks from which they originated.

So let’s explore slacktivism in all its glory; from the good (#YesAllWomen), to the bad (#AllLivesMatter), to the ugly (#NoMakeupSelfie- just kidding, you’re all beautiful blah blah blah…).
