Ahmet Atay, associate professor in the departments of Global Media and Digital Studies, Communication Studies, and Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies, is co-editor of a new book, Social Media, Technology, and New Generations, with Mary Z. Ashlock, associate professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Louisville. Atay, Ashlock, and more than a dozen scholars contributed chapters on this look at the impact of social media on an the first fully online generations.

“In this book, we focused on Millennials and Generation Z and their usage of social media,” Atay said. “Most millennials and all of Gen Z grew up with new media technologies and have had an online presence at a young age. The pieces in the edited book are global, we featured the work of British and Nigerian authors who examined the usage of social media in their countries.

“I hope this book will be a resource for academics and students who are interested in the usage of social media by these two generations,” he said.
