On Early View “Social Media and Media Logics Shape Policing in the Digital Age” Julie Wiest’s review of Chris Schneider’s book “Policing and Social Media”

With the growing pervasiveness of social media in everyday life it is not surprising that the work of the police has been influenced by this new form of communication. It may however be surprising that until now  sociological research has largely explored how policing changes when crime scenes and actual crime incidence are being filmed and then widely distributed on social networking sites. Christopher Schneider has recently published a book that uses the media logic approach developed by David Altheide to systematically study the impact of social media on police work. Julie Wiest’s review of his book has just been published on Early View of Symbolic Interaction. Members can access the review by clicking on the image below.
