Social Media and Democracy
Lecture no. 35 from the course: Understanding the Inventions That Changed the World
Taught by Professor W. Bernard Carlson | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Inventions are not necessarily “finished” until they are put into the hands of consumers, and perhaps nowhere is this more apparent than in the world of social media, where a Tunisian blogger can be as much an “inventor” of Facebook as Mark Zuckerberg. This lecture looks at the evolution of social media and its role in recent political events around the world.
