The concept of “smart mobbing” is derived from a book by Howard Rheingold. It seems the roots of smart mobs originated in Tokyo and Helsinki where teens used to text each other to organize raves or stalk celebrities which I find weird. I don’t know why people care so much about celebrities to want to stalk them. It’s not like they want to see you why would you want to go fall all over them. It’s like going to a party where your clearly not wanted. Some people just don’t make much sense to me.
