Synopsis:

Facebook, in just a few years, has become one of the central tools
people use to communicate with each other in everyday life. However, the perceived freedom of action on the site and
the actual processes that are permitted in Facebook's
set up don't always match up: in this book this gap is examined.

This book identifies the interrelations between user text
actions and the software environment framing them. It takes a critical perspective on Facebook and
develops a model that grants methodological access to complex interlaced
practices incorporating media, text and literacies.

It shows Facebook users employing idiosyncratic and
Facebook-specific literacy practices, and gives weight to the larger hypothesis of
the software service as an ideological setting designed to calculate and
standardize human behaviour. Specifically, the book examines text action and automation within Facebook to determine how the software service
intervenes in the communicative flow between/among profile owners and profile
recipients. This is cutting edge
work and of huge importance to modern fields of discourse analysis and computer-mediated
communication.

Book Description: Discusses how users are gradually defined, equalized and standardized when performing actions within the Facebook environment.
