customlogoAcademics, researchers and PhD students are welcome with paper proposals.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the launch of Facebook, the most ubiquitous social media and communication platform in the world. It also gives us the opportunity to take a step back and examine increasingly important questions about how Facebook and the new social web have impacted the world of communication, from debate, discourse and rhetoric to philosophy, politics, social context, and other forms of new media.

Has Facebook been constructive or disruptive in these different areas – or perhaps both? How does the ease and ubiquity of online communication affect longstanding national, generational, ideological, gender and class divides?

We welcome papers seeking to explore such questions, including approaches that aim to challenge the importance, relevance or timeliness of such questions.
