Outrage Machine

March 6, 2024

Outrage Machine by Tobias Rose-Stockwell examines how tech and media affect public discourse and society. 

Rose-Stockwell's work introduces the "Outrage Machine" concept, illustrating how digital platforms highlight content that amplifies emotions, especially anger, to boost engagement. A crucial aspect of Outrage Machine is its exploration of how this cycle reinforces what we already believe due to the influence of social media algorithms, leading to political polarization. The author warns of the ramifications this poses, emphasizing the divisive nature of online discourse.

This book delves into the digital age's complexities, urging readers to reconsider their online interactions and the broader societal implications of digital platforms. The author encourages readers to foster informed and connected communities by employing civil discourse, critical thinking, and media literacy.

The library can help you develop the skills to critically evaluate digital content. Join Tobias Rose-Stockwell as he talks about how digital advancements shape our perceptions, relationships, and personal identities at the inaugural installment of our Facing the Future speaker series on April 13, 2024, in the Auditorium at Woodneath Library Center. Attendees will receive a copy of Outrage Machine while supplies last, and a book signing will follow the event. Register now!
