Abstract [en]

The ambition of this essay is to examine if groups on Facebook are examples of “slacktivism” and discuss which qualifications these groups have in order to provide a democratic conversation. The results will be discussed relative to democratic participant, information overload, interactivity and previous research. By nethnographically observing three groups and analyzing selected posts and comments with the critical discourse analysis one can see that slacktivism spreads easily by people liking and sharing posts from the groups to their friends. The particular groups that has been analyzed in this essay are committed to save Swedish traditions that they believe is threatened. The outcome showed no proof that the groups contribute to social change and they did not give rise to a democratic conversation. Instead the groups spread and encouraged nationalism and racism by blaming immigrants and Muslims for threatening Swedish traditions.
