Why ‘Slacktivists’ Are More Active Than You Think [INFOGRAPHIC].
From SOPA to Trayvon Martin, KONY 2012 to the ‘Bully’ movie, causes are all the rage in the social space this year.
Yet many people would argue that social media campaigns lack the action component of live activism — dubbing those who sign up for them “slacktivists.”
Sortable created this infographic, which looks at the trend of sharing, posting and tweeting to make a difference.
Sortable says slacktivists are twice as likely to volunteer, twice as likely to ask for donations, twice as likely to take part in an event and four times as likely to encourage others to sign a petition or contact a politician.
