Given the current state of the world, and social media’s role in dividing people further apart than ever, I sure welcomed this invigorating conversation with animal advocate and social media influencer John Oberg. John has advocated for animals on college campuses, with international animal protection organizations, and now he has launched his own independent, patron-funded project for animals through Patreon. We talked about the evolution of his advocacy, using social media to unite people, and how we have both been energized by our relationships with our moms.
John Oberg is a social media influencer and animal advocate dedicated to making the world a kinder place for animals by utilizing the power of social media. In late 2018, he launched his own independent, patron-funded program for animals through Patreon to maximize his impact, redefining animal advocacy in the social networking space. Previously, he served as Director of New Media for The Humane League and as Director of Communications for Vegan Outreach. Since launching his project, he has accumulated hundreds of millions of impressions of his content across social media.
