"Chinese social media users may not enjoy the chaotic, unchained freedoms the rest of the world has come to know, and love (and fear). But they are trying new things that will almost certainly have a global impact, and may even change our understanding of the phrase ‘social network’. The new emperors of China’s social space have understood that the rise of the internet is not a technological revolution but a cultural one."

For Millennials, the End of the TV Viewing Party - NYTimes.com
"Just as the landline went from household staple to quaint anachronism seemingly overnight during the last decade (acquiring a profoundly uncool air along the way), the television set has started to look at best like a luxury, if not an irrelevance, in the eyes of many members of the wired generation, who have moved past the “cord-cutter” stage, in which they get rid of cable, to getting rid of their TV sets entirely."

The myth of ‘us’: digital networks, political change and the production of collectivity - Information, Communication & Society
"Without doubt digital networks enable faster political mobilization, accelerated cycles of action, and some new forms of collectivity, but how consequential is this in the longer term when set alongside other longer term consequences of a digitally saturated environment? The author argues that some leading accounts of digital media's contributions to political change operate with a thin account of the social, the sort of thin account that historically has been supplemented by media's mythical accounts over the past century of their role in supplying social knowledge."
