Social media is both an asset and a threat to social and political goods like human rights, democracy, peace, and human security. Here is a report I wrote on social media. I am editing a series of policy briefs this year for the Toda Peace Institute and the Alliance for Peacebuilding with the aim to build the capacity of civil society to understand the economic and psychological appeal of social media, identify the range of opportunities and challenges related to social media, and promote discussion on potential solutions to these challenges. Currently, few in civil society or government understand how social media works. Technology experts and investor-oriented social media platforms cannot address the opportunities and challenges brought by social
media capabilities. Together, government, corporations, and civil society, need to find ways to respond to the growing crisis of social media ethics and impacts.
