Social media and the Olympics

The Winter Olympics in Sochi have seen a flurry of social media posts even before the opening ceremony on Friday. Pictures taken by journalists showing the conditions in the hotels in Sochi have gotten worldwide attention. And the strict social media policies for athletes that forbid any video posting have caused widespread criticism. I was interviewed on the impact of social media at the Olympics on the Jimmy Barrett Show on 1140-WRVA on Tuesday.

You can listed to the radio segment “Social Media and the Olympics” on the website of 1140-WRVA. Please also see a previous interview on the use of social media at the London Olympics and another interview on controversies at the games in 2012.
