UNICEF 2013: A movement against clicktivism

Earlier in our blog’s weeks we shared a video from the UNICEF campaign ‘likes don’t save lives’. This article discusses the 2013 UNICEF campaign in further detail. UNICEF created ads that show how hitting the like button is not nearly enough to cause change. This campaign was not hugely popularized but sends a great message that corresponds with our argument: clicking the like button is not enough. UNICEF tried to stress that sitting behind a screen may make someone feel like they are helping, when in actuality the ‘like’ button doesn’t do anything at all.
