Author: Valkenburg, Patti M., 1958-
Call Number: HQ799.2.M35 V35 2017
Description: "An illuminating study of the complex relationship between children and media in the digital age. Now, as never before, young people are surrounded by media--thanks to the sophistication and portability of the technology that puts it literally in the palms of their hands. Drawing on data and empirical research that cross many fields and continents, authors Valkenburg and Piotrowski examine the role of media in the lives of children from birth through adolescence, addressing the complex issues of how media affect the young and what adults can do to encourage responsible use in an age of selfies, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. This important study looks at both the sunny and the dark side of media use by today's youth, including why and how their preferences change throughout childhood, whether digital gaming is harmful or helpful, the effects of placing tablets and smartphones in the hands of toddlers, the susceptibility of young people to online advertising, the legitimacy of parental concerns about media multitasking, and more."--Jacket.

Policing and social media : social control in an era of new media / by Christopher J. Schneider ; Foreword by Davis L. Altheide.

20 Newest Books With Cover Art - February 5, 2018 - 4:40pm
Title: Policing and social media : social control in an era of new media / by Christopher J. Schneider ; Foreword by Davis L. Altheide.
Author: Schneider, Christopher J.,
Call Number: HV7936.P8 S38 2016
Description: This book investigates various public aspects of the management, use, and control of social media by police agencies in Canada. This book aims to illustrate the process by which new information technology namely, social media and related changes in communication formats have affected the public face of policing and police work. Schneider argues that police use of social media has altered institutional public police practices in a manner that is consistent with the logic of social media platforms. Policing is changing to include new ways of conditioning the public, cultivating self-promotion, and expanding social control. While each case study presented here focuses on a different social media platform or format, his concern is less with the particular format per se, as these will undoubtedly change, and more with developing suitable analytical and methodological approaches to understanding contemporary policing practices on social media sites."
