Culture and Identity. Studies in New Media
Social Media: Culture and Identity examines the global impact of social media in the formation of various identities and cultures. New media scholars- both national and international- have posited thought-provoking analyses of sociocultural issues about human communication that are impacted by the omnipresence of social media. This collection examines issues of gender, class, and race inequities along with social media's connections to women's health, cyberbullying, sexting, and transgender issues both in the United States and in some developing countries.

What Reviewers Are Saying
Social Media: Culture and Identity is a tour de force! Written with inspiring compassion, we finally have a refreshingly clear and well-crafted exploration of how social media channels impact everyday marginalized identities. -- Ronald L. Jackson II, University of Cincinnati and editor of Critical Studies in Media Communication This is a resource of choice for anyone seeking a deeper and broader knowledge and understanding of the new mediascape. -- Bala A. Musa, Azusa Pacific University As an academic with an interest in understanding the intersection between human interaction and social media this collection of scholarly articles and research is by far one of the most exploratory and provides a much-needed view of the technology-driven world in which we thrive. From blogs `masquerading as news' to the underpinnings of the social construct of the THOT and an investigation of hashtag activism, this text shines a light on the need for a fresh theoretical understanding of the new media environment and how this impacts socialization and culture. -- Francine Edwards, Delaware State University
