1. Bart, A. van. Connecting data: agenda-setting through connection.

Degree: 2014, Universiteit Utrecht

Traditional media, like the television, the radio, and the newspaper, are not the only ubiquitous media anymore. Social media have attracted a significant amount of users. Media events have started to evolve under social media influence. While traditional and social media differ, they both seem to have an agenda-setting function. The agenda-setting theory is, however, adjusted to researching media events in relation to traditional media only. This thesis transforms the agenda-setting theory to be useful in a new context with social media. The focus will be on the theory’s core concept, transfer of salience, by identifying the way social media can participate in the agenda-setting process. Yet, as social media are not created to serve their users, but the companies behind them, their design may harm a potential participation. Through a hermeneutic approach, I investigate the agenda-setting theory and the design of social media to achieve a level of understanding sufficient for the transformation of the agenda-setting theory in relation to social media. Focus will be on the theory’s core concept “transfer of salience”. This way, the theory may help us understand social media impact from an established perspective in the communication sciences. It appears that social media are able to exhibit salience through a strategy which I suggest to characterize as “amplification through connection”. By connecting messages, users, and other types of content – in short “data” – they are clustered into a meaningful whole. This way, data are amplified and they become salient in the wide plethora of messages on social media. While users are steered through social media’s commercial centered algorithms, users are not fully constrained; and can, to some extent, reject to go with the flow. Furthermore, social media can bypass the traditional media and directly set the public and policy agendas. They also can force traditional media to reconsider salience of an issue and “use” traditional media as an intermediary to set other agendas. Advisors/Committee Members: Boomen, M. van den, Vries, I. de.

3. Wal, M.M. van der. Spokenjagen op het web. Vormen online inactieve data een probleem?.

Degree: 2011, Universiteit Utrecht

Op het web blijft veel inactieve data op het web aanwezig. Aan de hand van spookblogs, die een concrete focus hebben binnen dit onderzoek, wordt er geprobeerd een antwoord te formuleren op de vraag of die inactieve online data een probleem zijn. De methode van dit onderzoek, metafooranalyse, is ondersteunend om in te zien hoe taal vormend is in het begrijpen van processen en fenomenen. De connotaties van metaforen zijn sturend in het denken en handelen van gebruikers. Spookblog blijkt als metafoor passiviteit te impliceren. De metafoor verhult echter dat er mogelijkheden zijn om actie te ondernemen. Wanneer hier dan ook de (actieve) handelingen weggooien of bewaren tegenovergesteld worden, middels de metaforen "afval" of "archief", dan zien we dat geen van beide een duidelijk antwoord geven op de vraag of inactieve online data een probleem zijn. Wel wordt in dit onderzoek de ambivalentie van online inactieve data op verschillende gebieden blootgelegd. Advisors/Committee Members: Boomen, M. van den, Kotkamp, E..
