The comments here about the power of social media are quite valid. I’ve seen a lot of people argue that signing petitions doesn’t get change accomplished. I believe this to be false. While they do not always result in the desired outcome, one of the most important things petitions do is create awareness. Social media helps boost that effect by giving people the knowledge that they can have their voices heard (as this article points out) and community members help each other find ways to do just that.
