Assignment one: Social movementsThrough the advent of social media, a thing known as ‘slactivism’ has arisen. This is literally activism through social media and, despite such a negative label, researchers are finding that this actually works! Activism through the medium of social media is having a significant impact. This is just ONE example of many of not only a ‘mass behavior’ but can also fit into all 4 categories of social movements. The individuals involved in this mass behavior/social behavior could easily be examined within the lens of the ‘contagion theory’ as well as the ’emergent-norm theory.’For this question, choose 1 SPECIFIC social movement going on today.
