Social media has become a pervasive tool. Love it or hate it (and many of us do both) it’s impossible to deny its effects on society. People use social media to follow everything from food trucks to police, and organize gatherings as diverse as political protests and flash dance mobs. Corporations and governments use it too. At the next UConn Science Salon, we’ll have experts track a current event in real time through social media and discuss what it means, how we can use it, and where the future of social media is headed.
