Social change often breeds social movement and Smelser has defined social movement as an organized group effort to generate socio-cultural change.

    References; Perhaps the social movement that ran the most contrary to theory in recent history is Occupy Wall Street (OWS). Although it contains many of the classic developmental elements of a social movement we will describe in this chapter, it is set apart by its lack of a single message, its leaderless organization, and its target—financial institutions instead of the government. Communication for Social Change: Context, Social Movements and the Digital is a critical introduction to communication for social change (CSC) theory. The book presents refreshingly new perspectives and specifically makes the case for CSC theory to factor in context, leanings from social movements and a critique of the digital technology.

    How Change Happens - Why Some Social Movements Succeed While Others Don't by Leslie R. Crutchfield explains why some social movements succeed while others don't realize their full potential. Leslie Crutchfield is a faculty member of Georgetown University and a leading authority on social change. Generally speaking, mass media include eight mediums: radio, television, newspapers, magazines, books, recordings, movies, and the Internet. Mass media are relevant to the study of social movements because they carry movement ideas to a broad audience and give activists leverage in institutional and political processes.
