Imagine

A xenophobe tweets about foreigners needing to be thrown out the country. In real time, a dialogue facilitator tweets him back, linking him in to two digital activists, both anti-xenophobic, and both passionate about and trained in dialogue on changing attitudes around xenophobia. In 2015 there were 91 972 overtly xenophobic posts on South African social media.

A 16 year old girl tweets that she is thinking of dropping out of school. In real time, a dialogue facilitator tweets her back, linking her into two digital activists, both of whom have recently finished school and have spoken glowingly about their experience on social media.  They pick up a conversation with the young girl, speak to her about why she is doing this, and try to dissuade her.

Using social media to provide the early warning signs of individuals becoming radicalized (before they go off public social media), and linking persons at risk with moderate Muslim digital activists.

A diabetic tweets about how the food she has to eat is un African, boring and bland. Boiled chicken breasts and lettuce leaves. Our digital activists link her to tasty diabetic friendly recipes adapted from the food she and her family like to eat and offer support.

A young woman wondering whether she should get tested, or saying she has been diagnosed HIV positive, and our digital activists encourage her to get onto ARVs as soon as possible and direct her to the nearest clinic.

A 15 year old girl tweets about her boyfriend being reluctant to use condoms. In real time, a dialogue facilitator tweets her back, linking her in to two digital activists, both of whom have recently spoken on social media about how they persuaded their boyfriends to use condoms.  They pick up a conversation with the young girl, and share tips and strategies with her.

A racist white man tweets about how the k$##%@s are ruining the country.  There were 18 547 posts using this word on South African social media in 2016. A dialogue facilitator links him in to two white male digital activists, and the process repeats itself.

Advocating across any given country or region for sex work to be decriminalised, by engaging hundreds of digital activists that spread messaging. Imagine backing his up with a well-defined and targeted social media advocacy campaign. Imagine doing the same to get girls access to sanitary pads while in school.

A young man tweets about having hit his partner the day before. In real time, a dialogue facilitator tweets him back, linking him in to two digital activists, both men, and both passionate about and trained in dialogue on gender based violence.

Using social media to provide early warning of public violence

A young woman says how she has been beaten, and our digital activists refer her to appropriate services.

A young man tweets about how he got drunk and drove the night before. Again our digital activists engage with him.

A homophobe makes an anti-gay statement.  We engage in dialogue with him.

This happening thousands of times, day in and day out, as a sea of conversation specific crowd-sourced digital activists, undergoing ongoing training in counselling and dialogue, and armed with facts and strategies around a host of societal issues – all work with you on social media platforms.

We have worked with some of the world’s top organisations to help deliver meaningful data-driven insights.

We are always looking for new partners to work with in developing data driven strategies to help,
in our small way, make the world a better place.
