CITP Lunch Seminar: Ashley Gorham

One of the most pernicious effects of social media is “context collapse” or the confusion of social contexts and their associated privacy norms. Drawing on Albert Hirschman’s framework of “exit” and “voice,” Ashley Gorham argues that the facilitation of voice in, rather than simply on, social media platforms is a promising approach, representing both a more nuanced, and potentially more effective, way of counteracting “context collapse” than the prevalent exit-based alternatives.
