Networked communication and social organization

The use of the internet is increasingly regulated by hidden filtering mechanisms, as epitomized by Facebook’s newsfeed, Google’s search algorithm, recommendations, rakings, and so forth. Alongside these developments, the networked structure of the internet continues to shape social interactions. CFI seeks to further our understanding of how the internet shapes and facilitates (new) forms of social organizing – in interpersonal, institutional and societal communications.
