ABSTRACT
Instead of making speeches on the street and marching in unity with our comrades, we post pictures of ourselves with the powerful, famous, or merely notorious and ask our friends to admire the social standing these pictures represent. The Web extra at http://youtu.be/1AoX0HSIZv8 is a video segment in which author David Alan Grier expands on his Errant Hashtag column, in which he discusses "power walls" past and present, the places where we post pictures of ourselves with the powerful, famous, or merely notorious and ask our friends to admire the social standing these pictures represent.
INDEX TERMS
