Can Facebook and Twitter make us better citizens? Is social networking effective as political involvement? How can social networks lead to social and political change in a digital era? Is sharing your opinion or making a donation the same thing as civic engagement? To explore these questions and more, join a faculty panel and your peers at SLinkSlam for a forum on “Social Networking, Political Advocacy and Citizenship in a Digital Age.”
