Pew Report: Speaking Up or Staying Silent on Social Media
AUGUST 27, 2014
Hope has been placed on the Internet (particularly on social media) to expose users to more sources of information and diverse points of view.

The report explains that studies have found that people are typically not willing to voice their opinion in public places if they perceive that their point of view is not widely shared.
