Given the current prevalence of Social Networking Services (SNS) in the exchange of information, and their epistemological and ontological impact on our world view, it is vital for every decision-maker and participant of public affairs to understand both the opportunities and challenges posed by SNS development. Employing both local and global case studies, this course aims to provide an academic overview on how SNS permanently changes the context and practices in public affairs. Students will also be instructed on the production of a SNS-based social listening report valuable to stakeholders and policy influencers.
