How Social Media Helps Amplify Advocacies
Social media—through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and other content—is a powerful and accessible tool. With these new media tools, governments, nonprofits, corporations, and individuals all have the ability to communicate their messages and participate in conversations with a global audience. Social media allows nonprofits and groups promoting social causes, even those with limited budgets, the opportunity to magnify their voices. In our hyper-connected world, individuals have the tools to effect change, raise millions of dollars, find volunteers, and make a global impact.
