Use of social media in community action

The Third Sector Research Centre is undertaking research into how and whether community groups use social media to organise community action. To get debate going, TSRC has produced a background and “provocation” paper ‘Community Action and Social Media’ (pdf, 506KB).

Views, ideas and comments on the use of social media in local/below-the-radar community groups are invited. Get the paper and contact details at http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/generic/tsrc/news/2015/02/community-action-and-social-media-research-position-statement.aspx. Or read an example from Dudley of community action being driven through social media and contribute to the debate which has started on the Digital Dudley blog, https://digitaldudley.wordpress.com/2015/02/14/community-action-and-social-media/.
