About this book

A lot of personal data is being collected and stored as we use our media devices for business and pleasure in mobile and online spaces. This book helps us contemplate what a post-Facebook or post-Google world might look like, and how the tensions within capitalist information societies between corporations, government and citizens might play out.

Reviews

"Dwyer has provided a timely and keenly observed guide to the fast changing information environment with 'Convergent Media and Privacy'. This richly detailed book takes the reader through a disturbing political economy of converged media which has comprehensively redefined privacy while the rest of us slept. This is excellent critical scholarship which is sweeping, accessible, and filled with telling examples of processes which - despite Dwyer's fair and measured analysis - threaten the essence of human identity." - Chris A. Paterson, School of Media and Communication, University of Leeds, UK
