SYNOPSIS
Social Media is arguably the most successful application (in its various forms) of the Internet in terms of uptake, despite significant reputational damage and negative news reports of unethical use and the risks associated with using it. Even those not using social media may have a presence, by implication, for example in photos or mentioned in posts. Ethics is concerned with what is 'good' - although what the 'good' is notoriously ambiguous - typical ethical principles refer to honesty and integrity ('virtuous' attributes), and behaviour towards others (respect, equality, don't harm). All of these are evident in social media, both in their positive and negative forms. This presentation provides an overview of the ethics, and risks, from this popular form of communication - and the challenges to regulation and societal norms.
