Tell Everyone explores how social media is changing how traditional media works and how it is reshaping the worlds of business, politics and activism. It explains why we feel compelled to share news, gossip and information, and always have. In this groundbreaking work, online news pioneer Alfred Hermida examines how our ability to create and share news is shaping the information we receive and depend on to make informed decisions, from choosing politicians to doing business. Drawing on historical examples, real-world experiences and leading research, he equips us with the knowledge and insight to navigate successfully the social streams of information that shape how we view the world.
