Social Media, Social Good: Ultra-Large Scale Public Engagement Systems to Challenge Anti-Social Behaviour
Introducing an EPSRC project...
How can technologies support community participation in order to address anti-social behaviour? This session will introduce the inter-disciplinary project Social Media, Social Good, an EPSRC funded collaboration between Computing and Communications, Department of Applied Social Science and Psychology. Taking a broad definition of anti-social behaviour (ASB), the project seeks to explore how new technologies can aid community responses to ASB. The session will introduce the project and encourage discussion around possible innovations in this field.
