Social media has powerful potential to connect people and ideas. But the dark side of social media—pushing users toward extreme content and the medium’s link to surging mass extremist attacks—has prompted calls for regulation. This book examines social media’s role in the spread of extremism and whether government or business might have a role in the industry’s regulation.
