I am interested in the role of social media & social networking sites in
civic activism (rather than in electoral politics, though the border is
admittedly fluid). I try to figure out how social media  such as Facebook,
YouTube and Twitter are being used by social movements, protests and
contentious action around the globe.

A while ago I asked the SOCNET list members to send me references
concerning this topic and promised to publish the results of my inquiry
through this list. I got very few replies but compiled a list of references
anyhow. You will find it at the following address:**lonkila/SNS_and_activism_**23032012.docx<>

When browsing through the list please note:
- The list is by no means complete and may also contain ‘irrelevant’
- I haven’t had time to check the correctness/ completeness of the
references or links
- The list may also contain non-scientific journals

I hope that it will be of use to someone... Greetings to all socnetters
from sunny Helsinki!

with best regards (and my warmest thanks to those who replied)
