In our "Government and Global Civil Society" class on 19th September, we had Jo Becker as a guest speaker, who is a Maxwell alum. Mrs. Becker is presently director of "Human Rights Watch", a non profit organization working for human rights all over the world. As said by Mrs. Becker, action of their organization is devided into three parts, namely (1)Investigate(2)Expose and(3)Change.
Mrs. Becker described Social Media ,among others, as a tool to expose the human rights violation the worldover. Thus it becomes crystal clear that social media is being utilized as a communication and engagement device by all types of organizations, whether they are profit ,non-profit or governance  organizations.
