The Dark Side of Social Media
In this book, Pavica Sheldon, me, and James Honeycutt discuss multiple “dark” aspects of social media. The first part of the book deals with psychological consequences, such as how (exzessive) social media use is linked to narcissism, depression and so forth. The second part looks at negative consequences for firms, in particular being a victim of “shitstorms” (i.e., more formally, “collaborative brand attacks” or “online firestorms”) and a critical view on the validity of social media monitoring.The last part looks at societies as a whole.
