Metadata[+] Show full item record
As social media platforms allow users to become even more guarded from dissenting opinions, companies targeting individuals aligning with opposite political parties are left deciding how to best connect with both audiences.

Using semi-structured interviews with experienced communications professionals, this study will explore if companies can participate on social media in today's political environment without risking being the next victim to cancel culture.
