Forum: the power & perils of social media

Noon - 2 p.m.
Viacom White Box, 1515 Broadway, New York, New York 10010

Social media platforms have transformed our relationships with culture, the media, and each other. They have the power to sway popular opinion, raise awareness, and inspire movements. They can spark, build, and foster community or be manipulated to create negativity and discord. Join us for a forum with Dario Spina, chief marketing officer at Viacom Velocity, where he’ll lead experts in academia, journalism, social technology, and marketing in a discussion about the implications of our relationships with social media and how it affects the way we interact with the world.
