The Media Ethics Initiative Presents:

The Dark Side of Social Media: A Panel Discussion


November 6, 2017 (Monday) — 1:00-2:00pm — BMC 5.208

What is the dark side to social media use? What can be done to improve our social media landscape? What are the ethical values and issues with our constant digital monitoring and publicizing of our every activity? Join the editor and authors of the recent book, The Dark Side of Social Media, for a discussion over how the internet and our social media activities can go tragically wrong. Topics discussed will include online privacy, wearable technologies, online revenge porn, and the power of blogging.
