March 23 – Social Media & Politics
Out in Tech and The Williams Institute Present
Social Media & Politics
Our politics and political discourse, long accustomed to traditional media, have had to adjust to the changes brought about by social media; these changes are in turn affecting how social media evolves. Come hear local technologists and thought leaders discuss how we got here and what’s next as social media, entertainment, and politics continue to play off one another.
