If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ella McPherson.

Social media are often characterized in terms of their capacities for engagement, and they are sometimes seen as examplary of a wider shift from ‘audience’ to ‘participation’. In my talk I will discuss some possible implications of the participatory qualities of social media for social research. I advocate a broad understanding of digital participation, which begins with the recognition that, in practice, digital social research usually involves and indeed requires collaboration between diverse constituencies.
