Hello, Nice review of what makes a successful boycott. I see you are familiar with the BUYcott because you use its name. There is a long history of the BUYcott going back to before the 1990s. The idea is what you describe, supporting companies and government entities whose policies you agree with ethically. However, why change the name to buycan? That will just confuse the public. BUYcott is intuitive. People can realize from its title that it's the opposite of a boycott. Buycan, however, is not self-descriptive. The BUYcott app you mention is not really an authentic buycott because a major thrust is a list of companies to boycott. Perhaps that's where the confusion comes from. Google "BUYcott" to see how it's been done.

Thanks ff3fbb4c for your comments and questions! I googled "buycott" and did find some information about the non-app "buycott" and you are right, our BOYcan is the same concept as buycott. When we did our initial research we found more info on the "buycott" app then we did on the "buycott" movement. Plus, calling it Boy Can gave us an excuse to make the silly twerking video. A very tiny excuse but we ran with it!We hope you'll run with us as we continue this Joystick journey!
