Social media has been transforming American and global cultural life for over a decade.

It has flattened the divide between producer and audience found in other forms of culture while also enriching some massive corporations.

At the core of Social Media Freaks is the question: Does social media reproduce inequalities or is it a tool for subverting them?Social Media Freaks presents a virtual ethnography of social media, focusing on issues of identity and inequality along five dimensions-race, class, gender, sexuality, and disability.

It presents original and secondary findings, while also utilizing social theory to explain the dynamics of social media.

It teaches readers how to engage social media as a tool for social activism while also examining the limits of social media's value in the quest for social change.
