New Momentum offers social media research and consultancy for social change

Mission

Social media for social change

Communication shapes the world around us. But nowadays, media technology plays a role of increasing importance. For example, algorithms distort how we communicate by tailoring our timelines to provide a personalized version of reality.

Or is it a polarized version?

New Momentum believes that social media can be used as a force of good: we leverage social media for positive change on the internet. We research digital media networks to develop campaigns that break through filter bubbles and catalyze social change.
