In the fast-changing world of social media, it is imperative to have a text that changes with the times. With several new chapters covering Big Data, Trump, the challenge from China, platform capitalism and more, this thoroughly revised third edition of Social Media does just that, even as it retains a strong commitment to critical theory, democratic values, and digital activism.
Excellent book (as per previous additions). We use this as the recommended reading for multiple weeks.
Good overview of current issues around social media platforms and actors around them. New chapters and discussions might resonate very well with the interests of many students.
I particularly welcomed the addition of discussion of non-western platforms.
