Exclusion and Inclusion in Personal Media Networks

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookConference contribution

Abstract

Personal media bypass mass media hierarchies, generating a sense of community and proximity. Print “zines” and online “blogs” also serve to culturally and socially distinguish those who produce and consume them. Digital network technology has transformed personal media. For example, blogs enable viewers to add comments, extending the parameters of inclusion. At the same time, instances of exclusion seem to proliferate in the “blogosphere”. The simplification of complex tools makes it ever-more easy to create personal media: hence the multiplication of internal exclusion procedures which serve to differentiate agents equalized by undifferentiated inclusion in dominant networks.
