SIO258: How Social Media Can Subvert Democracy

Lindsey Osterman is back for a follow-up to our Social Dilemma episode. Last time we talked about where the documentary got things a little wrong. Today Lindsey’s here to tell us what they had right, but didn’t go enough into. It’s not a pretty picture! As usual, she’s got the science to back the claims: 3 major studies which show that Facebook has affected real elections.

Studies: Kramer et al 2014, Bond et al 2012, Haenschen
