Social Media? Meet Politics. A podcast by the Social Media Research Centre.

By Social Media Research Centre
Social media and big tech are changing our politics, including shifts in how politicians can influence voters, how voters can speak to politicians and how we are able to talk about politics to each other. Follow this podcast to gain insight into how social media is rapidly altering our political world, from the rise of fake news to micro-targeted advertising; we seek to understand how tech and politics are colliding.

A podcast by Tristan Hotham, founder of the Social Media Research Centre.
