A sign that reads social media featuring fancy designs within the letters

The introduction of social media has transformed how millions of people communicate with friends, family, strangers and businesses. But, it has also provided an outlet for fraud, scams and unethical business practices to reach a broad audience.

WSIU's Brad Palmer talks about the issue with Better Business Bureau regional director Sydney Waters.

As a news producer and news anchor on All Things Considered, Brad provides the listeners with a recap of the day's top local and state news as well as breaking news at any given time. Contact WSIU Radio at 618-453-6101 or email wsiunews@wsiu.org
