How social media can both weaken — and strengthen — democracy
Social media is simultaneously an empowering tool for the voiceless and fodder for manipulation by authorities, find the authors of a new Journal of Democracy article, "From Liberation to Turmoil: Social Media and Democracy." Social media is both "liberation technology" and a tool for undermining democracy, they say: "First, social media is a tool for giving voice to those excluded from access to the mainstream media. Second, despite the fact that social-media democratizes access to information, those using it can simultaneously censor and manipulate information to try to silence others’ voices. Some of these forms of censorship — such as hindering access to information or threatening would-be opposition figures — are centuries old. Others — such as employing bots and trolls to change the online conversation — are particular to the digital age. Taken together, these two factors — using online tools both to expand opportunities to speak up, and to expand opportunities to silence — can illuminate the complex relationship between social media and democracy. We conclude that social media itself is neither inherently democratic or nondemocratic, but yet another arena in which political actors contest for power." - Joshua Tucker, Yannis Theocharis, Margaret E. Roberts and Pablo Barberá for the Washington Post. Access the full article here: https://www.journalofdemocracy.org/article/liberation-turmoil-social-media-and-democracy

In the 1960s, computer technology began outpacing the speed of software programming. Computers became faster and cheaper, but software development remained slow, difficult to maintain, and prone to errors. This gap, and the dilemma of what to do about it, became known as the “software crisis. via Pocket
