City Club of Portland says
Oregon politics are rapidly evolving – or so we think. The prevailing opinion is that the emergence of social media and decline of conventional media are changing the game and rewriting the rules. It’s quick, it’s sexy, it’s accessible and it’s opinionated – but is that perception actually reflected in how policy is made and elections are decided?

We do know social media has changed how we keep up with events and communicate with others. Those of us who still get a daily newspaper probably see much of its content online before we even read the front page. But has that actually changed the way people reach conclusions and act on their opinions?

Join us for a conversation with communicators who grapple with this question on a daily basis. They'll discuss the current and future effects of social media on public perceptions, policy debates and political outcomes in Portland and Oregon.
