FoxNews is reporting that protesters in Venezuela (protesting Chavez’s takeover of the leading tv network in the country) are using Facebook and text messaging to organize their protests.

If it is really true, its a great example of Smartmobs in action. The ironic thing is, earlier in the day MSM was reporting that they werent sure how long the protests could continue, because they dont have an identified leader.

A massive, self-organizing group working with technology and tools at hand to protest against an oppressive government act of censorship and media control.

Sounds like a Stafish and Spider case study. 🙂
