This subject introduces students to the risks and opportunities afforded to professional communicators by social media. The social and semantic web disrupts institutions and institutional practice. Consequently, communication professionals in all aspects of the field need to know what social media are emerging, who uses social media, the tools available to analyse social media communications and the policy and legal implications that arise in their use. Emerging practices, such as participation literacy, are examined in order to drive effective production and consumption of communication in the professions.
