Social Media, Social justice? Read My New Journal Publication

I recently had an article published looking at Social Media and Social Justice in the NICEC Journal. You can now read this online through my university’s research repository.

Here is the Abstract Bellow:

Inside the overall context of careers development, this article will explore how social media relates to social justice through exploring two contrasting perspectives. Firstly we will consider the potential of social media to enhance social justice by democratising social life and so address inequalities related to career development. We will secondly consider if social media develops new forms of inequalities in the forms of the network it creates which harm the progression of social justice. It will be argued that these two perspectives coexist, presenting social media as both disrupting and intensifying inequality in society. This will be particularly highlighted through attaching these positions to different schools of thought related to social capital.
