Facebook, Memes and Michael Bloomberg

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

For most of us, breaking away from Facebook is not easy. But a Stanford study shows that it causes users to feel less happy and amplifies political divisions. We’ll talk to the co-author about their research before switching over to another social media platform – Instagram. Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is enlisting popular meme accounts to target younger voters using the app. Our resident pop culture expert, ODU’s Dr. Myles McNutt, joins to shed light on the interesting approach. Call us at 757-440-2665 or 1-800-940-2240 to join the discussion.
