Tuesday, September 26

From the Arab Spring and Estonia to Brexit and the 2016 U.S. elections, Facebook, Twitter and Google have played a significant role in influencing public opinion, mobilizing groups and impacting elections.

Based on the speaker's 15 years of research on the impact of Google, Facebook and social media on privacy and safety, this presentation examines the political and social impact of these internet giants. It also lays the case for why they may need to be regulated or held to higher standards.
