One thought on “‘Likes Dont Save Lives’

  1. I couldn’t resist liking this post and discussion in the link. It is good to remind people about the limitations of social media activism but the call for donations at the end was somehow disappointing. Similar criticisms could probably be levelled at fun runs and other charity events that sometimes (often?) end up giving very little to the causes they are promoting (as far as I know).
