Social Media are changing the structures of our media system by expanding public spheres to new actors, by providing new mechanisms for sharing and distribution of information, and by shifting boundaries between the public and the private. The presentation will introduce key practices of social media use, identify resulting changes in public communication, and identify areas where new skills and fluencies are needed.
