  • Translating the Virtual to the Real On the Influence of Social Class on Facebook Use in Brazilian Environmentalism


    Recently, the use of social network sites like Facebook has become widespread, and this thesis explores the role of Facebook use in environmentalism in Brazil. Previous research took into account the use of Facebook to disseminate environmental information, mobilize people for pro-environmental action and convey a shared identity related to the environment, but overlooked the possibility that class differences between environmental movements produce differences in the way these movements use Facebook. +INFO
