What is digital society?
In the early 21st century, digital media and the social have become irreversibly intertwined. In this cutting-edge introduction, author Simon Lindgren explores what it means to live in a digital society. Neatly divided into three sections, Digital Media and Society expertly leads students through:
- Theories: from social media and cyber-optimism, to online social interaction and social change
- Topics: from emotion, participation and the public sphere, to the impact of data, software and mobile technology
- Tools: from digital ethnography, social network analysis and text-mining, to guidance on digital ethics and mixing methods
With succinct explanations of key concepts and theories, practical exercises to aid understanding and application, and suggested further reading sections to guide students through the literature and enhance their own research, this is a must-have resource for all students of the digital society.
Digital Media and Society is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate courses exploring digital media, social media, media and society, media sociology, and the Internet.

"An impressive accomplishment. The book will reward both students and advanced scholars with its comprehensive overview, deft and accessible style, and an array of significant insights contributing to our developing understanding of social media and, most broadly, a coming post-digital society."
"A brilliantly written, essential text for understanding how digital media are changing society and how we can theorize and empirically study digital transformations."
"Digital Media and Society is a remarkably clear and engaging guide to understanding the complex interactions between technology and the everyday. The compelling current examples beautifully illustrate concepts and theories, making learning a pleasant ride."
SAGE Journals "an excellent textbook, which should be seriously considered by any instructor teaching an introductory course on digital media."
"...[the author] also does an excellent job of explaining how these strange and often insular scholarly debates relate to societal issues, providing important context for students."
