About this book

In this book, Helen Kennedy argues that as social media data mining becomes more and more ordinary, as we post, mine and repeat, new data relations emerge. These new data relations are characterised by a widespread desire for numbers and the troubling consequences of this desire, and also by the possibility of doing good with data and resisting data power, by new and old concerns, and by instability and contradiction. Drawing on action research with public sector organisations, interviews with commercial social insights companies and their clients, focus groups with social media users and other research, Kennedy provides a fascinating and detailed account of living with social media data mining inside the organisations that make up the fabric of everyday life.

Reviews

“I am grateful that this book highlights so many aspects of social data mining, including the quantified self movement and the Seeing Data project that identify ways in which ordinary citizens can engage more with the politics of data mining … . Media studies students and professors seeking a snapshot of scholarship on social media data mining will find this text incredibly helpful as an aggregator of a vast and ideological varied body of scholarship.” (Daniel Keyes, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61 (51), December, 2016)
