What is it about?

This publication dives into the link between social media and socialism. It establishes a unique and ground-breaking perspective on how the truncated manner in which social media relays the news, helps the socialist cause.

Why is it important?

This is one of the first published studies to address the link between social media and socialism. It looks at how social media helps crony capitalism at the detriment of laissez-faire capitalism. Notably, it also exposes the dangers behind this media channel when in the wrong hands.
