Harvard’s Gina Glantz talks Social Media and Storytelling with HLP Students
All Day Event
Using the recent controversy between Susan G. Komen’s decision to pull its funding from Planned Parenthood, Prof. Glantz and students discussed how supporters of Planned Parenthood used social media like Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, and blogs to eventually pressure Komen to reverse its decision. Prof. Glantz argued that supporters of Planned Parenthood were successful because they were able to use those outlets not simply to reach other like-minded individuals, but to provide a forum for supporters to share their personal stories.
