Trendy Causes:

I wrote a paper on a "new trend" and I chose sharing a social or political cause on social networking websites and the effects of doing so (gaining support for causes, possible embarrassment, inciting a spark of rage etc).

I touched on Occupy Wall street, Kony 2012, and the Trayvon Martin Tragedy (#hoodiesup).

I need to name my paper and can't think of anything. My mom suggested "#SocialSwarming but I don't think that accurately describes my paper. 

What do you think?

Bandwagoning!!?

I think that's pretty spot on and appropriate. Especially kony 2012 and Trayvon.
