Government confidence vote: Slacktivism at its worst

So everyone is changing their Facebook avatar to "la thika" (no confidence) in reference to the confidence vote session of the government (the joke of course is that phonetically it resembles Lecico the sanitary wares company). This reminds me of  "liking isn't helping" - the Crisis Relief Singapore ad which illustrated that liking something online has no implication on the actual situation, ergo a mere act of slacktivism (slack-activism). I am not being a defeatist, but how such a move online will get translated on the ground is beyond me.
