Social media platforms as space for access to information; these forums are, also, serving as spaces of promotion and communication for emerging authors, writers, illustrators, and more – and for audiences, an opportunity to discover and engage. By reframing and reshaping access to knowledge, social media is tracing new methodology of literature promotion, participation and economies.
