Sorting out the Internet with Data Analytics.
Based on documentary research, participatory observation, and in-depth interviews, this project will investigate the construction, implementation, and dissemination of third-party supplied metrics on online expressions in China. Drawing from communication literature on visibilities, science and technology studies, and emerging critical data studies, I will analyze how these metrics instigate and organize new regimes of visibility that reconfigure societal perceptions of web use and web users, and how this reconfiguration shapes people’s online encounters and experiences.
