The Whatcom Museum presents a virtual presentation, “Hacking Democracy: What Social Media is Doing to US Politics,” with political scientist Travis Ridout.
Social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram, some of which did not even exist a decade ago, are playing an increasingly central role in politicians’ efforts to get elected. What does this mean for the American voter? Ridout will explore the pros and cons of social media in political campaigns.
