Die Themen Digitalisierung und Social Media werden in der Gesellschaft kontrovers diskutiert. Fast jeder Mensch kommt auf seine Art und aus seinem Blickwinkel mit Social-Media-Anwendungen in Berührung. Dieses Buch gibt anhand zahlreicher Beispiele einen Überblick über die Vielfalt der Nutzungsmöglichkeiten, Potenziale, Chancen, Risiken und Gefahren. So trägt es zum kompetenten Umgang im Privat- und Berufsleben sowie zur Nutzung und Gestaltung von Social-Media-Anwendungen bei.
Plattformen wie Facebook, Wikipedia, YouTube oder Twitter haben in den vergangenen Jahren das Internet stark verändert. Sie gelten als ´´soziale Medien´´, weil sie großen Einfluss darauf haben, wie Menschen sich selbst und ihre Interessen im Internet präsentieren, wie sie Beziehungen pflegen, neu knüpfen und sich über relevante Themen informieren. Zugleich werfen sie eine Reihe von weit reichenden Fragen auf: Verschwindet durch soziale Medien die Privatsphäre? Machen soziale Medien jeden zum Journalisten? Bringen soziale Medien Wissen für alle? Sind die sozialen Medien partizipativ - oder überwachen und kontrollieren sie den Menschen? Diese Fragen beantwortet der Band aus kommunikationssoziologischer Sicht und gibt so einen Überblick darüber, wie soziale Medien unseren individuellen Alltag wie auch unsere Gesellschaft verändern. Für die zweite Auflage wurde der Band aktualisiert und um ein Kapitel zur Meinungsbildung in und mit sozialen Medien erweitert.
