Collective Action 2.0

Shaked Spier hat das Buch “Collective Action 2.0″ über den Einsatz von sozialen Medien in kollektivem Handeln und sozialen Bewegungen veröffentlicht. Er behandelt darin auch Aspekte der Informationsethik. Der Autor hat an der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin u.a. Informationswissenschaft studiert. Aus dem Klappentext: “Collective Action 2.0 explores the issues related to information and communication technologies (ICTs) in detail, providing a balanced insight into how ICTs leverage and interact with collective action, which will have an impact on the current discourse. Recent events in different authoritarian regimes, such as Iran and Egypt, have drawn global attention to a developing phenomenon in collective action: People tend to organize through different social media platforms for political protest and resistance. This phenomenon describes a change insocial structure and behavior tied to ICT. Social media platforms have been used to leverage collective action, which has in some cases arguably lead, to political revolution. The phenomenon also indicates that the way information is organized affects the organization of social structures with which it interoperates.” (Klappentext) Das Buch ist im März 2017 bei Chandos Publishing erschienen und kostet in gedruckter Form ca. 60 Euro.
