How might we use social networks to facilitate a short-term boycott on a company or product that creates positive community pressures?
Bob: my last name is Bennett, not Pareto. I'm going out on a limb, and say "Yes" - IF you (and your cohorts) are a part of the 20% who make-up the 80% of the sites activity (e.g. articles written, comments made, etc). If you and your cohorts are part of the 80% who don't make-up the lions share of the sites activity, then you probably won't be noticed.

I would think it depends on 2 things: 0) the number of users on the site and 1) the 80/20 rule (a.k.a. Pareto principle). On Facebook, with millions of users, as far as Facebook is concerned - you'd have to organize a REALLY large boycott to be noticed. On a smaller site with thousands of users, if you (and your fellow protesters) are a part of the 20% responsible for 80% of the interactions, then yeah... you might be noticed.
