Social Networking for Social Justice?

My friend Paramendra from Democracy for Nepal has a great idea - using social networking sites to build social movements and mobilize activists. In fact, it's not really his idea. According to Boing-Boing, 15,000 teenagers who attended the immigrant rights protest in Los Angeles last month organized a school walk-out (to attend the protest) through MySpace.com. Currently, social networking is not very popular in developing countries (I think) but in a few years, who knows?

The internet is the great equalizer. The masses can truly get heard through it. It is a democratizing force.
