Value is seldom discussed in its own right, though it is of utmost importance to our relations with media texts and cultural objects, as we constantly make judgements of various kinds with respect to them. This book focuses on how value - aesthetic, political and social and economic value - is produced in contemporary media and cultural production. Contending that value is not constituted by the essence of a thing, but is rather produced in social relations, through negotiations and justifications, Value and the Media discusses changes in the cultural industries over the past two decades, emphasising the rise of new, digital media, and the opportunities that these afford for the production and consumption of media texts and objects. Richly illustrated with examples from the UK, USA and Europe, this volume explores a range of media: both old mass media and new personal media, with a constant focus on the importance of both for our understanding of the changes that have occurred on the media landscape and their implications for the production of value. As such, this book will be of interest to social scientists and theorists working in the fields of cultural and media studies, popular culture, and consumption.

Das Internet ist für den Alltag vieler Menschen unerlässlich geworden. Wir informieren uns über Neuigkeiten, sehen uns Videos an, hören Musik, kommunizieren privat und beruflich, kommentieren und teilen Inhalte und erledigen Banktransaktionen online. Das Internet hat die Gesellschaft verändert, dort spiegeln sich auf komplexe Weise gesellschaftliche Verhältnisse wider. Daher sind alle menschlichen Tätigkeiten im Internet sozial und alle Internetanwendungen soziale Medien. Christian Fuchs nimmt den Leser mit auf eine Reise durch die Welt der sozialen Medien, die er im Kontext der Gesellschaft kritisch betrachtet. Dabei geht er speziell auf die Plattformen und Angebote Google, Facebook, Twitter, Weibo, Airbnb und Uber sowie Wikipedia ein. Er beleuchtet diese aus Sicht der Kritischen Theorie. Das Ergebnis legt die Strukturen und Machtverhältnisse unserer Medienlandschaft eindrucksvoll dar.

How is labour changing in the age of computers, the Internet, and "social media" such as Facebook, Google, YouTube and Twitter? In Digital Labour and Karl Marx, Christian Fuchs attempts to answer that question, crafting a systematic critical theorisation of labour as performed in the capitalist ICT industry. Relying on a range of global case studies--from unpaid social media prosumers or Chinese hardware assemblers at Foxconn to miners in the Democratic Republic of Congo--Fuchs sheds light on the labour costs of digital media, examining the way ICT corporations exploit human labour and the impact of this exploitation on the lives, bodies, and minds of workers.

Digital Broadcasting presents an introduction to how the classic notion of 'broadcasting' has evolved and is being reinterpreted in an age of digitization and convergence. The book argues that 'digital broadcasting' is not a contradiction in terms, but-on the contrary-both terms presuppose and need each other. Drawing upon an interdisciplinary and international field of research and theory, it looks at current developments in television and radio broadcasting on the level of regulation and policy, industries and economics, production and content, and audience and consumption practices.

While the analysis of generations has been central in the sociological understanding of social change, the role of the media in this process has only been acknowledged as an important feature during the last couple of decades. Building on quantitative and qualitative comparative research, Media Generations analyses the role of the media in the formation of generational experience, identity and habitus, and how mediated nostalgia is an important part in the social formation of generations. Avoiding popular generational labelling Göran Bolin argues that the totality of the media landscape is a contextual structure that together with age and life-course factors help inform world-views and ways to relate to the wider society that guide the actions of media users. Media Generations demonstrates how - as different generations come of age at different moments in the mediatised historical process - they develop different media habits, but also make sense of the world differently, which informs their relations to older and younger generations. It also explores how this process of ‘generationing’, that is, the process in which a generation come into being as a self-perceived social identity, partly builds on specific kinds of nostalgia that establishes generational differences and distinctions. This book will be of special interest to those studying social change, collective memory, cultural identity and the role of the media in social experience.

Was heißt es für unsere Kultur, wenn wir durch Mobiltelefone überall erreichbar sind? Was bedeutet es kulturell, wenn alles Wichtige im Fernsehen verhandelt wird? Wie ändern sich unsere Vergemeinschaftungen, wenn wir zunehmend über das Social Web vernetzt sind? Welche Folgen hat all das für den Wandel unserer kulturellen Welten? Fragen wie diese werden in diesem Band allgemein verständlich behandelt. Als Medienkultur werden Kulturen begriffen, deren zentrale Ressourcen durch technische Medien vermittelt sind. Medienkulturen sind entsprechend in ihrem Alltag durch Medien geprägt. Will man solche Medienkulturen begreifen, genügt nicht der Blick auf ein Einzelmedium wie das Fernsehen, das Mobiltelefon, die Zeitung oder das Internet. Man muss die „Mediatisierung“ von Kultur insgesamt im Blick haben. Wie dies auf kritische Weise möglich ist, wird hier dargestellt.
