Gray Areas: Human Relations and Critical Thinking in the Era of Social Media (Refleksyon sou enfliyans medya sosyal) with researcher Herve Fanini-Lemoine and Haitian radio and TV personality Carel Pedre. Moderated by Myrtha Wroy, M.S. Includes special segments with artist Vanessa Charlot and Haitian radio personality Elizabeth Guerin from Island TV.

There is no doubt that social media has changed the world. Information that used to take days or weeks to spread is now instantly available around the globe, and access to this information is just a mouse click away. Whether it is traditional media, or a personal post gone viral, information is now spreading faster than it ever has, and it is not always reliable information.

In this panel, we examine the toll of social media on interpersonal relationships, and the influence of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Whatsapp, etc., at the social, political, and economic level.

Pa gen dout, medya sosyal chanje lemond. Enfòmasyon ki te konn pran jou oswa semèn pou simaye disponib kou yo parèt kounye a toupatou sou Latè, epi pou jwenn enfòmasyon sa yo se annik klike. Ke se medya tradisyonèl, oswa post yon moun ki gaye tout kote, kounye a enfòmasyon simaye pi vit toujou, e se pa toujou bonjan enfòmasyon.

Nan panèl sa a, n ap egzaminen konsekans medya sosyal sou relasyon ant moun, ak enfliyans Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Whatsapp, elatriye, nan nivo sosyal, politik, ak ekonomik.


The Little Haiti Book Festival is part of Miami Book Fair’s ReadCaribbean programs, sponsored in part by the Green Family Foundation, Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and Florida Division of Cultural Affairs.
