Social media have played a direct role in recent civil
uprisings around the world. The videos below galvanized movements. They
captured the world's attention. They changed history.
It might be too early to know which images and video footage will define the present uprisings in Ukraine and Venezuela or Thailand. But the videos below defined recent uprisings in Iran, Bahrain, Egypt, Libya, Montreal, Syria, and elsewhere around the world.
Some are graphic and disturbing. Others are inspiring and beautiful. All of them made a difference.
