<p>A study of the impact of social media on societal stability can begin with various cybermovement organizations (CMO) as well as their formation, structure, development, and internal and external dynamics. We have witnessed several CMOs emerging from Facebook and Twitter that they have played significant roles in social change, serving as grassroots campaigns in political elections and as an organizational tool in the recent Middle East revolution. To deal with the huge amount of Web data involved, many AI methods and tools addressed by this magazine, such as social networking, data mining, machine learning, language processing, and text and content analysis, are essential for the success of such a study.</p>
