The concluding chapter summarizes the account of the Umbrella Movement provided in the book. It discusses the implications of the analysis on several key issues in the study of media and social movements, including the origin of connective action, the power and limitations of digital media and connective action, the significance of movement frames, and the relationship between digital media and mainstream media. The implications are discussed by referring not only to the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong but also to other similar protest campaigns around the world in previous years. The chapter ends with some updates about happenings in the movement scene in Hong Kong after 2014.
