Transcript of Strong Ties vs. Weak Ties

Strong Ties Weak Ties vs Strong Tie Activism Strong Tie Activism requires a deeply personal connection to the issue, which leads to the acceptance of high risk behavior (as seen during the Civil Rights Movement). The point of contact for strong tie activism has to be a friend, family, or colleague in order to serve as a gateway to social action. Finding resources for this type of activism is not always easy, and requires more from the participant. Strong ties activism is focused on building a group of like-minded individuals. The group and the cause are more important than each individual's identity. Weak Tie Activism Weak tie activism allows for a less personal connection and rarely leads to high-risk actions. Because of social networking sites, members can connect without ever meeting each other, and are behind a computer screen - out of harm's way. The point of contact that serves as a gateway for social connection doesn't need to be a family member, friend, or colleague. It could be anyone from anywhere in the world. Thanks to the internet, the person you connect with could be someone who uses the same hashtag as you. Weak tie activism can be made up of numerous activities, and asks the participant to do less.

Due to the internet and the advent of Google, it has become much easier to connect and find resources, and therefore has made it easier for people to join a cause.
