本文主要講社交媒體的管控，由於監視活動，一些關鍵問題與隱私和公共領域有關。研究者指出，社交媒體網站通過鼓勵一種以實現解放自然理想的技術為核心的公民賦權錯覺，強化了權力駕馭社會控制的製度能力。有人認為，只有考慮到社交媒體組織的商業導向，才能對社交媒體進行批判性分析。研究發現，在社交媒體的背景下，對用戶授權的關注是有爭議的，監控的組成部分也有類似的強調(Jenkins et al.， 2016)。本篇代寫essay文章由美國論文通AssignmentPass輔導網整理，供大家參考閱讀。
Some of the critical concerns are linked with the privacy and public sphere due to the activities of surveillance. The researcher indicated that the social media websites have strengthened the institutional ability of power to harness the societal control through encouraging a citizen empowerment illusion centred on the technology for realizing the ideals of emancipatory nature. It is asserted that the social media can only be critically analysed when the commercial orientation of the social media organizations are taken into account. It is found that as much as the focus on the empowerment of users are argued in the context of social media, similar emphasis is given to the component of surveillance (Jenkins et al., 2016).
It is to consider that while the social media users are empowered to showcase their opinions freely on the social media, there are number of implications related to the free publishing of the individual thoughts, beliefs and ideas. There are two recent instances where the collaborative protest of users on social media translated in overturning the government of Iran. However, at the same time, the social media was used by the governments and institutions to identify and track the protestors in order to prosecute them (Van Dijck, 2013a).
The critical examination of the social media websites indicates that the communication which is facilitated by social media is fast faced and consist of limited space due to which majority of the conversations are one way and result in people to communicate partly without the involvement of second party (Van Dijck, 2013b). This indicates that not only the social media provides with the individual empowerment, but also provides ability to the government and reinforcement agencies to restrict the free flowing information and activities.
