Students in NYU’s Social Media in Politics class will be campaigning for mayor online rather than in traditional TV and radio forms of communication. Politics is in the air in NYU Land, and three candidates are planning the race of their lives to defeat the incumbent mayor this fall. While NYU Land only exists in social media, its presence there lays a foundation for real citizens to run for office. And adjunct professor Mike Fraietta hopes that his Social Media in Politics online course will shake up political campaigning. “Politics itself is way behind, and it hasn’t been disrupted as much as other industries have,” Fraietta said. “If I could help educate others so that politics in general can move forward, I’d be a much happier person.”
