The #ReclaimSocial campaign, led by tech-for-good platform Lightful, to ‘reclaim social media for good’ went viral on social media and reached an audience of over 13 million people in one day.
Leading with the tagline, “There’s too much negativity on social media nowadays. Let’s reclaim social media for good”, the movement shines a light on positive stories in the media to divert attention away from fake news and negativity that can dominate platforms.
According to Lightful, about 1,000 people and organisations participated on the day of the campaign, with a total of 1,600 social posts.
Vinay Nair, CEO & Co-Founder of Lightful, said: “Charities and social enterprises have some of the best stories to tell, which is why we’re delighted to help grow the potential of using social media for social good – we certainly need that to happen now more than ever. We are humbled to see so many people getting behind the #ReclaimSocial movement, and this feels like just the beginning.”
