Pronounced: FUHN-zee, adj
Notes: A nice word to know
The word slacktivism means “activism that requires minimal effort” (examples are forwarding a message, or clicking a “like” button).
This word came into English in the 1990s
Background / Comments
Our word is a blend of slack and activism. As I said, for some people today, forwarding an email, or filling out a form online, or clicking “Like” are how they pat themselves on the back for being “involved”. Another word – “clicktivism” – is also used.
