An experiment in form and content, its aim is to be a guide and map of some of the opportunities to develop more open and networked practices while navigating the potential downsides of social media, including perceived loss of privacy and amplification of disadvantage and abuse. It is an excellent and accessible starting point for, as well as route to, a deeper understanding and a more sophisticated use of social media.

'Social Media in Higher Education: Case Studies, Reflections and Analysis' helps to scaffold different learners from #beginner to #advanced and even facilitates learning by doing through the use of podcasts and case studies. In addition, it not only provides a unique insight into the evolution of social media but also encourages readers to reflect on the increasingly blurred lines of public and private digital realms.
