Bjorn and I would like to thank to Zizi Papacharissi for supporting our
special issue, Stacy Blasiola for all the behind the scenes wrangling to
get all the papers actually published, everyone who took part as a peer
reviewer, ensuring these papers were the best they could possibly be, and
thanks as well to all our fabulous contributors. This is an issue which
really highlights an important emerging area looking at how very young
people are being portrayed, surveyed, datafied and performed online!
