Be it during demonstrations in Cairo and Moscow, protests in Washington or Stuttgart – social media are always accompanying the event. Big demonstrations are organized and documented via Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. What impact do social media have on the shaping of public opinion and on power relations within a society? Do they lead to more diversity of opinion and more democracy awareness? Do they give the oppressed a voice for
the first time in history?

As part of an international online conference, the Virtual Academy will take a look behind the scenes of change from 24 to 28 September 2012. Each day will highlight a new perspective: What do Social Media (R)evolution(s) mean to the people in government? What do they mean to the opposition, whether inside or outside a parliament? To what extent do the media landscape and the public change and what new forms do artists and activists find in and with
social media?

On Friday, 28/09/2012, we will meet relevant experts at Betahaus to put the discussed perspectives together in a differentiated picture: To what extent are social media a game changer for politics and the society?
