In the latest episode of Recode’s podcast, we talk to David Hulsey, an associate professor of sociology at UC Berkeley and co-author of a new book about social media, The New Sociology Compass.
In this episode, Hulseys new book takes us on a tour of the research on social media.
We ask: How is social media changing how we communicate?
How can we create a better way of doing it?
And we dive into the new book, The Sociology of the Internet, which argues that the new social media phenomenon is fundamentally different from the old.
The podcast also explores the history of social media in a different light: How does this new era of digital communication shape the way we think about our own culture?
And what are the most important lessons from the past few decades?
All of these questions are answered in the podcast, which is the most comprehensive interview ever conducted on social networks.
“I’ve always been fascinated by the history and the sociology of social networks, the idea that we’re all in the same place in terms of where we are, but we’re not all the same people,” Hulson says in the first episode.
“We are all in different places in our lives.
I think that’s really interesting and powerful.”
Hulssons latest book, which he co-authored with Sarah Fiedler, is called The Sociological Compass.
It examines the way that our relationships to each other, our communities, and our social worlds are being transformed by social media and the connectedness that has come with it.
The book explores how social networks have shaped the ways we connect with one another.
Hulses focus is on the connections between social networks and the people that create them.
This is especially important in today’s globalized world, in which we have become connected through a variety of online platforms.
“I really think the future is a combination of what we have today, and what we’re going to have to have in the future,” Hulsons co-creator says.
“In order to have a more vibrant world, we need to have more social networks.”
Hulssey is a professor of communication studies at UC-Berkeley and a professor at the Haas School of Business.
He is the co-founder of the UC- Berkeley Center for Data and Technology, a center dedicated to advancing the intersection of technology and culture at UC.
Hulsey’s book, titled The Sociologie des Networks, was co-written with Sarah Friedl.
He also co-wrote a book called The Digital Lives of Us, which discusses how the digital world has shaped our social lives and relationships.
In the first part of the interview, we discuss how the sociological approach to social media was initially adopted by social scientists.
The sociological view was that we all have some sort of social life that we engage in, that we participate in, and that we create.
The book takes that idea a step further, showing how these different activities are intertwined and interdependent.
“One of the things I like about sociology is that it tries to be a lot more than just a theory,” Horsley says.
Hulsson says that this is important to understanding the way social networks are affecting our culture and our relationships.
Social networks have been instrumental in our development as people, and he believes that they have become a huge part of our daily lives.
Hullsey says that he believes the rise of social networking has brought about a “surge in digital commerce.”
Hulsson points to the growth of social sharing sites like Instagram and Facebook, as well as online services like Uber and Airbnb, as examples of the social impact that social media has had.
In this second part of his interview, HULSONS co-authors Fiedl and Hulsdons research group at UC Berkley are talking about how social media is impacting the lives of people in the U.S. And they are asking, “How are we going to get out of this crisis?” “
The things that are being shared online now are the same things that were being shared in the old days.”
In this second part of his interview, HULSONS co-authors Fiedl and Hulsdons research group at UC Berkley are talking about how social media is impacting the lives of people in the U.S. And they are asking, “How are we going to get out of this crisis?”
In a recent article in the New York Times, Hilsons cofounder says that we need a “new sociologists and a new social science,” as well.
According to Hulss research group, “The new social sciences are looking at things that we’ve been doing for years: The social networks; the digital worlds; the social relationships.”
“We need to think differently about what we
