This course offers a critical understanding of the ways in which social media affect the political, business and socio-cultural spheres of our everyday lives. The course explores online communities and corporations and discusses how transnational and transcultural identities and relationships are trans-acted and negotiated in the virtual-real realms. Ethical and legal issues on privacy, truth and deception are analysed. Through an interdisciplinary lens, you will engage with social networking sites such as Wikis, Facebook and Twitter to identify changing patterns of production and consumption.
