People use a vast array of social media and communications technologies as part of their everyday lives and practices. This research collective brings together social scientists and humanists from sociology, communications, anthropology, media studies, information science, and cultural studies to examine how social media fits into people’s practices. We examine social media practices through various methodological and theoretical lenses and provide insight into how social media is reconfiguring daily life. Much of our work centers on emergent Web 2.0 technologies, including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc. but we also look to situate these emergent practices in the history of computer-mediated communication.
