No Safety Net Workshop:
How to Become an Internet Troll

Events
Free
No Safety Net
 

Learn about some common types of trolling techniques, including the mechanisms behind different types of conflicts that can happen between users online. We’ll show how people create memes to insult others, find information for doxxing, and construct posts to inflame anger in others. The goal of this is to raise overall awareness of how these processes operate and increase your ability to resist these attacks yourself. This event will be facilitated by U-M School of Information professor Cliff Lampe.

Participants should bring a smartphone or tablet with a camera to connect to WiFi at the event.
