Social Media and Informal Organisation of Citizen Activism: (10/12)

Lessons From the Use of Facebook in the Sunflower Movement
by Panayiota Tsatsou
This paper presents an interview study of the role of Facebook in the informal organisation of the Sunflower Movement in Taiwan. The study found that participants in the Sunflower Movement engaged more with Facebook’s information-spreading and information-sharing functions than with its networking affordances. They used these functions to enhance the public’s engagement with the movement and recruit new participants, as well as to initiate, support and coordinate offline action.
