There’s an interesting section on Avaaz, the social network that brings people together to focus on changing society for the better. It’s called “Avaaz by the numbers,” and it’s an enlightening little tidbit that shows you just how much Avaaz has impacted the world since 2007. There are 195 countries where Avaaz petitions are active. Over 45 million members have joined since 2007. Even more enlightening is the over 345 MILLION actions that have been taken by Avaaz members over the course of just 10 years. This is an active community of change seekers who want to make the world a better place. If the numbers are any indication, they’re succeeding.

Avaaz is open to all categories of campaign. Some members are focused on animal rights, others on human rights, and still others on smaller issues that might not have bubbled to the surface of the public eye just yet. Members don’t have to depend on sponsors from the government or private corporations, either. They’re entirely self-funded and so they don’t have to hold anything back when it comes to unleashing a campaign that might call attention to some injustice in the world.

So far people in 195 countries have joined together to let their voices be heard online. Technology that didn’t exist 10 years ago has made it possible. Some people prefer social networks that let them socialize. Avaaz members prefer social networks that allow them to join together to work for a common cause. It’s impossible to measure just how much Avaaz has positively impacted the world for now, but as the years go by, it will become clearer by the number of actions taken by this very hardworking, devoted group of people who just want to make the world a much better place for themselves and for people in the future.
