The Impact of Social Media: Portal or Pitfall

On Friday, April 27, 2012 The Phillips’ Mill Community Association’s Annual Forum took place at the Mill in New Hope from 7-8:30 pm on the subject “The Impact of Social Media: Portal or Pitfall”. Keith Hampton, Ph.D., Associate Professor in the Department of Communications at Rutgers University presented the results of a recent national study on the impact of social media on our relationships.

This presentation was of interest to high school students as well as adults and provided an opportunity to explore the implications of some recently emerging research on how these new social tools are effecting our interpersonal and community relations. Love it or hate it, we cannot ignore this phenomena.
