Are the US protests lost online?

As organisations and private individuals participating in the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York continue to flood the internet with information, some say demonstrators should look to online models being employed in the Arab Spring uprisings.

Thousands of posts, tweets and videos are going live each hour about the protest from Zuccotti Park in Manhattan - fuelling concerns by some that the message of the demonstration, which originally focused on economic inequality, may be getting lost.
