The connection between social movements and social digital was delved into this week. It really inspired me to look into the history of some campaigns, and i was drawn to the one given as an example last year; Draft our Daughters. This was cooked up by opposition trolls on multiple platforms to scare away military shy families.
Whats scary was that it was built on literally nothing but lies and the idea behind it wasn’t even believable, yet it flew by and had quite an impact.
It proves just how terrifying anti trust campaigns could be when driven by passionate people.
This weeks remediation is a snippet of a podcast done with friends where we operate on our own social movement: convincing an older friend that gaming is a sport.
