For this Discussion, watch this Experts in Emotion video. In this episode, you will learn about “Emotion and Social Media” from Arturo Bejar, who was a director of engineering at Facebook for more than five years. Arturo managed a team that built site integrity tools but acknowledges we still have a long way to go to “humanize each other” on social media sites. Bejar shares what first got him interested in this topic and highlights a few core themes in his research.
