Emre Bayamlıoğlu

It is the main postulate of this chapter that unlike conventional mass media focussed on content as a service, the commercial strategy in today’s social networking and media landscape renders communication an end in itself and thus significantly degenerates its politicizing effect. Accordingly, this brief text aims to address the burgeoning need for more critical and questioning approaches to the alleged democratic affordances of ICTs –seemingly through a more plural and participative communication environment. Considering the imminent moral, economic and environmental threats that humankind is facing, I raise the question whether our hyper-connected infosphere could help us build a collective awareness of the dangers ahead.
