Presidential Debate — This House Believes Social Media is Anti-social
Join us for the Presidential Debate, where the outgoing Union committee will handover to the new committee! The debate will explore whether social media is truly as social as it can be in design and effect. With more communication online than face to face, and the prevalence of social media in elections, this debate relates to everyone and how we communicate with the world.
