If you were on Facebook (or any social media) at all the past couple of days, you probably saw the words "Me too" or #MeToo in your feed.

The Me too movement took off when actress Alyssa Milano shared a Tweet from one of her friends on Sunday afternoon.

Women began sharing their experiences of being sexually harassed or assaulted in response. By Tuesday morning, more than 12 million posts on Facebook contained the words along with more than 1 million tweets.

But, women are not the only ones who are posting. There are also men who are stepping forward and posting "Me too" on their Facebook pages and Twitter accounts.
