About the book

This book will introduce the reader to the risks and opportunities that social media presents to individuals, communities, and institutions. Social media's fast-changing environment continues to affect everyday lives, societal culture, and institutional practices. As a result, all members of society must be aware of emerging social media platforms, particularly those that will have a direct impact on their being and future. Discussions about who uses social media, the effects of social media, social media strategy and tactics, social media analysis, online safety and security, and the policy and legal implications of social media use may assist readers in better preparing for and balancing the risks and opportunities associated with social media use. Emerging methods, such as digital education and literacy, are investigated in order to facilitate the production and consumption of social media content by users of various demographics. The readers will be informed by academic commentaries and scientific discoveries based on theory, research, and best practice.
