Interesting paper 'bout twittology

"[...] para desenvolver um método inicial para modelar e simular as interações entre os usuários de redes sociais, foram coletadas mensagens publicadas por 25 mil pessoas nas redes no Twitter do presidente dos Estados Unidos, Barack Obama, e de seu adversário político, Mitt Romney, em outubro de 2012, último mês da recente campanha eleitoral presidencial norte-americana.
Os pesquisadores analisaram o conteúdo das mensagens e o comportamento dos usuários nas redes de Obama e Romney, de modo a identificar padrões de ações, a frequência com que postavam mensagens, se eram mais positivas ou negativas e qual a influência dessas mensagens sobre outros usuários."

Introduction
This book deals with the use of advanced ICT technologies in the policy lifecycle and decision making of governments. The use of ICT support in policy design, modeling and implementation (“e-Policy”) ensures a two-way communication protocol between citizens and governments during the whole lifecycle of a policy.

The methods and the ICT tools to support the policy lifecycle have drastically changed with the emergence of social media, advanced simulation techniques, open government data, big data, opinion mining, advanced text analytics and visualization, amongst others.


Within the FP7 research program several projects have focused on different technologies and use cases. For the first time the “Future Policy Modeling” Project (FUPOL), a large scale integrated project funded under the 7th framework program of the European Union, has provided a complete detailed policy lifecycle model, linked each step to new ICT technologies and explained its benefits for governments, citizens and other stakeholders. It has also outlined how different available technologies can be integrated in such a model that fit into ICT-infrastructures of governments.

Debates sobre E-participation

e-participation - What's the X-Factor?

22 May 2013 | 8 Visits | Rating: No votes
"e-participation - tools, processes, policy", that is the name of the workshop, the youthpart project organised within the framework of the conference "Building tomorrows Europe" in Bonn, on May 7-8.
The conference was the 25th anniversary celebration of the National Agency for the EU programme "Youth in Action" and youth participation is a key field of interest in international youth work. Consequently, the project youthpart that aims to explore e-participation for young people and their inclusion into the digital society, took over the challenge to bring a high-quality workshop on e-participation & youth alive: 35 interested participants joined this workshop, where experts from Ireland, Austria and Germany stirred up the discussion and brought a broad variety of perspectives to the table. 

The x-factor - what makes online participation successful?
Listen here to the discussion

"There has to be a binding agreement and the process has to be taken serious", responds Eva Panek from Liquid Democracy e.V. "Of course, there are different other factors, but these are
the most important ones, according to my opinion". For Andreas Karsten from youthpolicy.org, the problem is a different one. "Everyone assumes e-participation is cheap and quick. But it is
not and that makes e-participation not completely working as it could be, at least at this point in history where we are now". For him, the x-factor lies in the assigned budget for programming and the website. "That should not exceed  10% of the overall budget for the e-participation project". Deirdre Lee from the European project Puzzled by Policy adds, that just the website or a tool does not make the process. "Also," she states,"Policy does not change overnight. It has to be an integrated process with realistic goals". Judith Schossböck from the European project Ourspace says, "There are direct and indirect ways of effective youth participation. Yet, seeing the direct impact to the process is crucial for individuals, and this can happen through by having fun or receive a form of recognition, for example ".

Relationship between e-participation and inclusion
Listen here to the discussion

Lorena Jaume from I&G Co:llaboratory who facilitated the workshop opened quickly the floor for discussion and contributions from the audience. "Don't we reach anyway the top 10%, the elite of society, through online participation, what about the disadvantaged young people", a person from the audience asked. Another contribution pointed out that youth people may be disadvantaged because they live in rural areas and might be left behind when it comes to digital participation due to lacking internet connection. One person from the audience encountered that it has explicitly the so-called disadvantaged young people who connected themselves through social media during the riots in England last year. Andreas Karsten suggested that while most participation processes and tools online still require text-based input. A change towards more interactive, audio and visual input is needed.

An online tool is participatory when...
Listen here to the discussion

One returning question also in international debates is, what makes an online tool participatory and how is the relation between online and offline. Hence, Lorena Jaume took the chance to challenge the panelists with these questions. Most panelists agreed that online and offline processes need to be combined in order to be effective. Additionally, Eva Panek points out, there need to be incentives for young people and tools need to be ad-hoc, flexible and with a low threshold to be able to to pick young people up where they usually often are, namely online. Deirdre Lee brings it down to three hallmarks, that make tools participatory. "Clearly, that is accessibility, transparency and accountability", she states. For Judith Schossböck a certain digital gap is a part of the process, one need to deal with still at this point. Also Andreas Karsten can list three specific hallmarks for participatory tools: "A tool has to present that historic context of a debated topic, furthermore, it is needed to include the position a person or institution has towards a topic over time, and of course, accountability, meaning, what has changed over time related to a debated topic".

10 years from on there will be no more e-participation
Listen here to the discussion

Time flew by quickly and the 75 minutes discussion time were approaching its end and Lorena Jaume invited the panelists to become fortune tellers: "According to you what has to be done 10 years from now on?". 
Deirdre Lee hopes that participation becomes a normal part of daily life and that technology plays an important part in it. Also the movement of open data and further developments in social media will support it. "Gaining experiences about e-participation processes, more exchange about this still young phenomenon, building up knowledge", summarizes Eva Panek. "The school curriculum needs to take up these developments", states Judith Schossböck,"already now we observe a generation gap in schools where teacher try to prevent pupils in engaging with social media". Andreas Karsten hopes for smaller devices and less big screens. He also draws a little bit of a doomsday scenario:"The real battles are outside of youth sector when it comes to e-participation. Everyone needs to know who Neelie Kroes is and what needs to be done to keep the internet infrastructure open and decentralised. Otherwise, in 10 years, it will be too late to debate about e-participation as we know it now, as it will be a victim of media regulation".

Themed Issue of New Media and Society: ‘10 years of Facebook’

Guest editors: Siân Lincoln, Liverpool John Moores University, UK and Brady Robards, Griffith University, Australia

In early 2014 Facebook will have been online for ten years. Over the past ten years, Facebook has accumulated over a billion users globally, has achieved an estimated market value of over $100 billion, and has consistently been the most used social network site when compared to its competitors to the point of ubiquity. For many, Facebook has transformed the ways in which we communicate with each other in practically every aspect of our lives. Facebook has also attracted harsh criticism from users for its approach to privacy and transparency, and is regularly at odds with governments and other institutions over regulation and control. Facebook blurs traditional lines between what is private and what is public, while often complicating social relations by naming them and making them visible. The implications associated with the social network’s rise to dominance are complex and sometimes challenging, from both the micro levels of the individual through to the macro levels of society more broadly.

In this themed issue ‘10 years of Facebook’ we wish to explore the current ‘state of play’ with regards to the social, cultural and political significance of Facebook. Our aim is to bring together current academic debates surrounding this ubiquitous social network site to assess how, after ten years in existence, Facebook has made its mark on contemporary society as a space for social, cultural and political interactions. In addition, we wish to explore new and emerging approaches to the study of Facebook that interrogate the often complex relationships between the site, its users and everyday contexts.

We welcome short 250 word abstracts that reflect on ‘10 years of Facebook’, taking stock of the impact the site has had on contemporary social life. While attending to this broad aim, proposed articles will also need to address a more specific theme. Potential themes include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Identity
  • Performance and representation
  • Youth cultures and subcultures
  • Privacy
  • Friendship
  • Relationships
  • Fandom
  • Age/ageing
  • Before life and after life
  • Political activism
  • Social movements
  • Regulation and control
  • Trolling
Abstracts of no more than 250 words should be submitted to Siân Lincoln (s.lincoln@ljmu.ac.uk) by Wednesday 10th April 2013. On the basis of these short abstracts, invitations to submit full papers (of no more than 8000 words) will then be sent out in late April. Full papers will be due by August 31, and will undergo the usual New Media & Society peer review procedure. Invitation to submit a full paper in no way guarantees acceptance into the issue.

BIB: ICT, Public Administration and Democracy in the Coming Decade

Dear colleague,
I am delighted to announce the new issue (17:3-4) of Information Polity, focusing on ICT, Public Administration and Democracy in the Coming Decade and edited by Albert Meijer, Frank Bannister and Marcel Thaens.
On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the permanent study group on e-government of the European Group for Public Administration, we decided to take the risk and edit a volume on ‘ICT and Public Administration and Democracy in the Coming Decade’.
The 20th anniversary had already been used to look back at the work of this study group and this resulted in a rich special issue of Information Polity .We felt that we should now, as a counterweight to these backward looking reflections, look forward. This collection of papers celebrates the fact that research into e-governance is alive and well and presents cutting edge knowledge for academics and policy-makers.
Introduction
ICT, Public Administration and Democracy in the Coming Decade

Section One: the past and the present situation as starting point for thinking about the future.
What lessons for the future can be learned if we look at the practice (Bannister and Connolly) and the visions (Taylor) of eGovernment in the past? Lessons can also be learned from complexities associated with eGovernment (Lips). Knowing what we know now, how can we deal with these complexities?

Section two: the future implications of eGovernment for Government Institutions.
This section then covers topics that are relevant for thinking about the way government works and functions. One of these topics is the added value of interorganizational information sharing and integration (Gil-Garcia). But also discussions about a new concept like 'Publicness' of information (Mergel) or a more classic theme like Transparency (Grimmelikhuijsen) seem to fit very well within this section. Also the future of participatory democracy and the idea of a do-it-yourself state are described (Meijer).
Section three: the future implications for our e-government reseach and practice.
Where the contributions so far have looked at the concept of eGovernment itself and the developments in the future, now the shift is made to the future of the study and research of this phenomenon. How can we raise the explanatory power of eGovernment studies in the future? In what way can we benefit from the body of knowledge in different scientific areas (Bekkers)? And how useful is the use of 'a big question' approach for the further development of eGovernment studies (Yildiz)? And what are major trends regarding the development of e-government (Scholl).

Pew: Reading Habits in Different Communities


Reading Habits in Different Communities

Reading habitsSeveral surveys by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project reveal interesting variations among communities in the way their residents read and use reading-related technology and institutions:
Book readers: Some 78% of Americans ages 16 and older say they read a book in the past 12 months. Urban (80%) and suburban (80%) residents are especially likely to have read at least one book in the past year. While rural residents are somewhat less likely to have read a book in the past year (71%), the book readers in rural areas read as many books as their counterparts in cities and suburbs.
Purposes for reading: Most of those ages 16 and older read books for pleasure, and that is especially true of suburban readers: 82% of suburbanites read for pleasure, compared with 79% of urban residents and 76% of rural residents. Urban residents (80%) and suburban dwellers (79%) are also especially likely to read to keep up with current events. Some 73% of rural residents do that. More than three-quarters of suburban residents (77%) read to research topics that interest them, compared with 74% of urban residents and 70% of rural residents. Finally, 57% of suburbanites and 58% of city dwellers read for school or work, compared with 47% of rural residents who do that.
