Personal Data
“User–generated content is commonly known as social media. These virtual communications can be approached from the Bhaskarian critical realist and Marxist–Luxemburgist perspective perspective of Dialectical metaRealism™. According to this inclusive framework, social media represent a shift away from an informational oligarchy (elite dominance and disunity) toward media democracy (emancipation and unity in diversity). Consequently, average persons are no longer exclusively the consumers of information. They can now become—sometimes through a direct participation in processes of syndication—the producers, purveyors, and publishers of diverse subject matter.”
