Whether out of desire or necessity, billions of people have immersed themselves in electronic media and algorithmically optimized communication networks. This trend has inspired an interest in the effects on populations where the interface with their friends, family, community, commerce, religion, culture, race, nation, and the world is predominantly through mediated systems and devices.
This book surveys the scholarly research that studies the influence of mediated communication systems on the human construction of social worlds, the perception of reality, and personal sensemaking strategies.
