Making Sense of a Networked World since 2010

The Social Media Lab is an interdisciplinary research laboratory at the Ted Rogers School of Management, Toronto Metropolitan University in Canada. The lab studies how social media is changing the ways in which people and organizations communicate, disseminate information, conduct business

and form communities, and how these changes impact the social, economic and political structures of modern society. The broad aim of the lab’s various research initiatives is to advance the public’s understanding of the benefits and pitfalls of social media adoption.
