Anti-Social Media?
  • Description

Social media has revolutionised journalism and wider society, for good and bad. Journalists have powerful tools - but are watching the collapse of a newspaper industry failing to compete with social media platforms. Individuals can make their contribution to the global conversation, but at the price of vicious and intimidatory trolling which threatens freedom of expression. Social media has transformed political campaigning but its recent misuse in the UK and US undermines democracy. This book recognises the good and looks at ways to minimise the bad, with contributions from leading experts in journalism, politics and digital media, as well as the latest academic research.
