The digital world moves fast. Digiactive, a five-month-old site devoted to digital activism, has released its first guide, A DigiActive Introduction to Facebook Activism. The 15-page PDF includes the pros and cons of using Facebook for activism, a step-by-step guide to organizing an activism campaign on Facebook, and examples of campaigns from Burma, Morocco, and Egypt.
No doubt this will be of immense help in Lebanon, where Facebook is the number-one accessed site. Also, since the Lebanon network has more than 230,000 members, many of whom aren’t in Lebanon, this could also help civil society organizations and activists connect more extensively to the Lebanese diaspora—one of the key take-away suggestions from the recent Global Voices Summit.
