Bots, Terrorism, and Media Literacy

This is our 100th issue of Connections! We appreciate the interest and support of the media literacy community.  In this issue,  we interview two scholars who explain how terrorism has infiltrated the online world, how computational social science focuses on predicting future behavior in regards to terrorism, how bots undermine our trust in social media, and how media literacy can help.  Interviews with Dr. Philip Seib, Professor of Journalism and Public Diplomacy, University of Southern California, and author of As Terrorism Evolves: Media, Religion and Governence, and Adam Badawy, PhD student in Computational Social Sciences studying malicious behavior on social media.
