The internet has greatly facilitated social networking. People can quickly, conveniently, and cheaply communicate with others. People can use their computer to store contact lists, and then can contact these people through various mediums from instant messengers to email, most of which is either free or very cheap. Additionally, online social networking has been even further amplified by social networking websites, such as MySpace, Friendster, and Facebook.

Activists need to take note of these changes and utilize the new methods of social networking. Activism relies heavily on organization and coordination, which in turn relies heavily on social networking. The most powerful activism is that which is decentralized, and the new technology of the internet has made it very easy for decentralized movements to start.

It is amazing the power that the internet has given to the masses in the form of communication and organization. Meetup.com is my favorite. I'm not going to say but I am sure you all know which presidential candidate has benifited the most from internet activism. That is a great blueprint for advancing second amendment activism.
