Social Media Influence on Modern Campaigns
Amidst national movements, such as the #MeToo campaign, people are coming together across the nation utilizing digital tools and social sites. Teachers nationwide have mobilized through various social media sites to campaign for higher wages and more state funding. These widespread movements have been successful due to the extensive reach they get online, allowing educators to communicate with one another and share ideas. “It’s where we congregate now,” Jennifer Grygiel, assistant professor of communications in the Newhouse School, told ABC News as part of a larger discussion about the coordination of social causes online.
