GS 4160 (4 credits)

Politics and Social Media

As social media becomes an increasingly prevalent means of distributing information, advertising products and services, and communicating with stakeholders, questions arise regarding the politics and ethics that inform its use. What are the potential consequences of using platforms such as Twitter to disseminate political ideologies? How has the use of LinkedIn affected workplace politics and changed the ways in which professionals network? Does professional success require the use of social media, or does its presence in certain contexts do more harm than good? This course will address these questions and others while providing students with lenses through which to view the intersection of social media and politics in the workplace and beyond.
