The Social Media Reader
The Social Media Reader | Michael Mandiberg
5 posts
With the rise of web 2.0 and social media platforms taking over vast tracts of territory on the internet, the media landscape has shifted drastically in the past 20 years, transforming previously stable relationships between media creators and consumers. The Social Media Reader is the first collection to address the collective transformation with pieces on social media, peer production, copyright politics, and other aspects of contemporary internet culture from all the major thinkers in the field. Culling a broad range and incorporating different styles of scholarship from foundational pieces and published articles to unpublished pieces, journalistic accounts, personal narratives from blogs, and whitepapers, The Social Media Reader promises to be an essential text, with contributions from Lawrence Lessig, Henry Jenkins, Clay Shirky, Tim O'Reilly, Chris Anderson, Yochai Benkler, danah boyd, and Fred von Loehmann, to name a few. It covers a wide-ranging topical terrain, much like the internet itself, with particular emphasis on collaboration and sharing, the politics of social media and social networking, Free Culture and copyright politics, and labour and ownership.Theorizing new models of collaboration, identity, commerce, copyright, ownership, and labour, these essays outline possibilities for cultural democracy that arise when the formerly passive audience becomes active cultural creators, while warning of the dystopian potential of new forms of surveillance and control.

I was today years old when I found out Litsy was on the web. Wow. Also learning about some other cool features I've missed by scrolling back through older posts from the official Litsy account. They have been putting in that work! 👏🏽 #themoreyouknow

Did anyone ever start that master list of Littens who have blogs / YouTube channels? If so, can someone send me the link? If not, I‘m gonna have to start one.

BarbaraTheBibliophage Someone did but I can‘t remember who! 14mo
teebe @BarbaraTheBibliophage I remember seeing an Excel sheet but I have no idea where to find it. Or was that the birthday one? 🤔 14mo
MaGoose If you scroll down through #litsybloggerslist you can find the current list. It seems to have gone cold since I tried to add my blog and didn't get a response. It looks like @MidnightBookGirl may have started it. Maybe get in touch with her. It would be nice to keep it going. I know I'm interested. @BarbaraTheBibliophage 14mo
vkois88 @SassenachTheBookWizard has one ❤❤ I'm sure there are others, but that's the only one I can think of off the top of my head 13mo
vkois88 Totally read that wrong... sorry. Idk of a list, I just meant she has a channel on YouTube 13mo
