A lot of people try to avoid television commercials, for good reason. They are kind of like an uninvited guest in your living room: there you are, hanging out with your funny friend Jon Stewart, when along comes some way-too-perky lady trying to sell you car insurance.

From SOPA to Trayvon Martin, KONY 2012 to the ‘Bully’ movie, causes are all the rage in the social space this year. Yet many people would argue that social media campaigns lack the action component of live activism — dubbing those who sign up for them “slacktivists.” Sortable created this infographic, which looks at the trend of sharing, posting and tweeting to make a difference.

The half-hour video in question underscores the LRA's grisly atrocities, which include the murder, rape, and abduction of tens of thousands of people over the past two decades.
