Hello all,

the Journal for Computer Supported Cooperative Work has a special issue 
on the impact of social media and big data on citizenship.  It appears 
evident that the emergence of social media platforms and data practices 
challenges our traditional understanding of citizenship. This special 
issue investigates telling examples of this process and aims at mapping 
the various actors of change. Exploratively, the papers describe how 
social media and data repositories provide possibilities or challenges 
for civic action, investigate their potential for expanding the media 
sphere from corporate news coverage to commentary and debate in the 
blogosphere or address issues that arise through the intensified 
possibilities of data analysis.
