What is a flash mob?

Category: Society & Culture


Flash MobA flash mob (flashmob) is a group of individuals, from all walks of life, that assemble in a public area with the intent of executing a rehearsed performance in a way that makes it seem unscripted. The performance may entail a popular dance, song, or other action largely for the purpose of entertainment and shock value. It will typically start, seemingly out of nowhere, and end just as fast as it began. Flash mobs are typically organized and communicated with the use of cell phones, email, web 2.0 sites, and social media (twitter, facebook, etc.) outlets.
