For the 2018 Festival of Ideas, we come together to discuss how Facebook, Cambridge Analytica and other social media companies have hit the headlines over the last years, with many people concerned about the effects social media are having on our democracy and society.

Hear from our expert panel of Dr Nóra Ni Loideain (Director of the Information Law and Policy Centre at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies), Professor John Thompson (Professor of Sociology, Director of Polity Press and Fellow of Jesus College), and Professor Siva Vaidhyanathan (author of 'Antisocial Media: How Facebook Disconnects Us and Undermines Democracy’).
