Challenging Citizenship: Social Media and Big Data

A special issue I’m really looking forward to reading:

The Journal for Computer Supported Cooperative Work has a special issue on the impact of social media and big data on citizenship.  It appears evident that the emergence of social media platforms and data practices challenges our traditional understanding of citizenship. This special issue investigates telling examples of this process and aims at mapping the various actors of change. Exploratively, the papers describe how social media and data repositories provide possibilities or challenges for civic action, investigate their potential for expanding the media sphere from corporate news coverage to commentary and debate in the blogosphere or address issues that arise through the intensified possibilities of data analysis.
