CONFLICT ON SOCIAL MEDIA: DEALING WITH LIKE MINDS AND DIVERGENT OPINIONS

Hannah Stonehouse Hudson
Nov 1, 2018  |  10 am-11:30 am  |  Face-to-Face  |  FREE EVENT

Combative online conversations can happen because we are surrounded online by those who agree with us, as our online community generally reflects our views. A divergent opinion popping up can be shocking, and can cause a harsher reaction online than it would face-to-face. 

How do we avoid these combative situations and how do we make sure we see opinions other than ones we agree with online? Join us as we explore these topics and discover some tools to help navigate conflict on social media.
