Is it Legal? SMU Alum Creates New Book on Rapid Changes in Social Media
Keeping up with constantly changing social media issues such as cyberbullying, sexting, online copyright and more is a daunting task. Routledge, a global publisher of academic books, journals and online resources, has just released a new book compiled and edited by SMU alum Daxton R. “Chip” Stewart (B.A. journalism and B.A. history, ’94), Social Media and the Law: A Guidebook for Communication Students and Professionals. Essays by 11 social media scholars detail the legal challenges that have arisen with social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube as they relate to journalism, advertising, and public relations.
The book is available through Routledge at the following link: (http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415535144). Downloadable e-books are also available through Kindle, Nook, and Google Books.
