During this three-session colloquy we will explore instances of social media use in an effort to create change. Some of the issues we will examine include:
Videos of “bad actors” and how people share and respond to such videos.
How Twitter impacted and facilitated the Arab Spring.
The use of social media in politics, including advertising by campaigns and supporters sharing of information (both correct and incorrect).
Materials will include relevant social media posts, videos, and articles addressing the use of social media to effect change.
