SOPA Bystander Effect!

We all know a bystander effect happens. The bystander effect is a social phenomenon in which the presence of other people reduces helping behavior. Do you think the bystander effect also occurs online? I do, and with more and more talking about SOPA/PIPA, I’m curious to know how many are simply the bystanders. 50%, 60%, or even 90% or more are bystanders. Doing noothing, with the hope someone else is taking care of it.

Please, don’t be a bystander. Don’t be the guy/girl thinking someone else will handle it. Go, and do something about it. Please read https://www.google.com/landing/takeaction/ to learn more and how you can take action without being a bystander. Do Something! - I can’t, I’m Canadian.
