Abstract

The main objective of Producing the Internet: Critical Perspectives of Social Media is to analyse the newly emerging ‘participatory culture’ the Internet is said to inherit: do users benefit from an increased freedom to raise their voice in virtual environments? Or is the access and distribution of information still in the hands of a selected few? The book aims at critically discussing media transformations, particularly in light of ubiquitous social media platforms that have taken on a vital role in peoples’ lives in recent years. It comprises 13 chapters from international scholars aiming to deepen the reader’s understanding of this new type of media.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
