Center for Social Media and Politics, New York University
NYU’s Center for Social Media and Politics is an academic research institute dedicated to studying how social media impacts politics, policy, and democracy. Social media has transformed politics around the world and the way we receive and engage with information. NYU’s Center for Social Media and Politics (CSMaP) hosts a global community of scholars to study this impact. Our rigorous, policy-relevant research harnesses social media data to study politics in new ways and explores how social media affects public opinion and political behavior. Through innovative research, teaching, and outreach, CSMaP advances scientific knowledge and informs public policy and discourse in the digital age.
