Victorian social media

Listen in pop-out player

In this week’s programme presented by Anne-Marie Tomchak, we find out why Delhi’s chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, is attracting so many jokes on Indian social media about his honesty and bravery. A new conversation in Britain around the hashtag #VictorianFacebook attempts to revive the Victorian era. We hear how the Victorians themselves would have been more familiar with social media than we may think.

And a naughty trend on social media: the new sites that want us to share our sex interests and lives with one another. But sharing sexual content online has its pitfalls as the victims of revenge porn known too well.

With Neha Bhatnagar, Matthew Sweet and Estelle Doyle in the studio.
