Connections: Understanding Recent News Stories Involving Social Media

Nov 23, 2015

Social media has been a home for racism and misinformation of late. University of Rochester students are demanding that Yik Yak be shut down after numerous racist postings. This hour, we work through a number of recent news stories related to social media with a pair of guests who can talk about how it works, and how the law comes into play with social media. Our guests:

  • Mike Johansson, senior lecturer of communications at RIT, and social media consultant at Fixitology
  • Scott Malouf, attorney whose practice is focused on the intersection of social media and the law
