Targeted activist strategies propel social justice movements to devise creative mechanisms in an effort to gain momentum. This discussion paper will analyze if cyberactivism can effectuate global political change. Varying views will be illustrated demonstrating the efficacy and the lack of efficacy of cyberactivism in its attempt to impact global political change. Comparisons and data analyses will assess the impact of communication media and the Internet, Internet connectivity of people, and impact of online technology on social movements. Research studies will gauge online communication tools, benefits/wins and challenges of cyberactivism, and future assumptions. Examples of cyberactivism strategies will illustrate how online technology has impacted political change in different regions of the world. The available evidence suggests that cyberactivism has created new ways for people to connect for the purpose of change despite where they live or identity differences. Although researchers may disagree about the efficacy of cyberactivism on global political change, the Internet still provides the essential platform for debate and information sharing.
