Chapter
In this chapter, the authors introduce functional criteria along Habermasian lines for the role of public spheres in a healthy democracy and apply research from the use of Twitter during the last German general election to describe the influence (or lack thereof) of social media on the electoral process. In particular, the authors discuss the worki...
Chapter
About ten years ago, we were still able to justify the reservations of sociology with regard to digitisation as a healthy caution against the hype of the ‘virtual world’ and ‘cyberspace’; today, the situation looks different: beyond the usual rhetoric of media revolutions, new forms of practice, organisation and order have emerged around digital te...
Article
This article examines the argument regarding whether perceived social exclusion during unemployment leads to procrastination through online media, which in turn lessens the job search efforts of the unemployed. Based on data from 386 unemployed Internet users, we argue that online procrastination plays an important role in the lives of the unemploy...

Social media provide new opportunities for politicians, such as personalized communication directed at specific communities of interest. Yet despite potential benefits, empirical analyses show that politicians tend to shy away from an active engagement of online audiences. This study explores the effect of politicians’ online boundary management on...
Article
Research examining the impact of social media use on the well-being of digital natives has resulted in a myriad of opposing outcomes indicating both positive and negative effects. Focusing on positive effects only, this study examines whether there is a boundary between online and offline realms in cohorts of student digital natives and what differ...
Article
Studies on politicians’ social media adoption have focused on structural antecedents, such as race competitiveness or resource availability. Yet theory suggests that new media adoption is heavily influenced by use motives. Based on a survey of politicians active on the federal level in Switzerland, we analyze the impact of use motives on politician...

Full-text available
Der Verlust des Arbeitsplatzes bedeutet weit mehr als der Wegfall des geregelten Einkommens. Zwei darüber hinausgehende negative Folgen stellen das erhöhte subjektive Exklusionsempfinden sowie die Verschlechterung der mentalen Gesundheit dar. Um diese beiden Konsequenzen abfedern zu können, sind insbesondere soziale Ressourcen relevant, die als Str...
Article
This article reports the results of a stratified sample survey of 2414 unemployed individuals in Germany regarding Internet usage, accompanied by a small sample of qualitative interviews and time-use diaries. The Internet serves as a structuring device for individuals during unemployment and helps such individuals maintain social contacts; it fills...
Article
Many people who are unemployed tend to experience forms of psychological and social losses, including a weakened time structure, diminished social contacts, an absence of collective purpose, falling status, and inactivity. This article focuses on the experience of diminished social contacts and addresses whether social media help the unemployed mai...
Article
Social media are transforming the nature of work. With the rise of social media, the discussion about the stress potential of new media once again becomes pertinent. Facebook, Twitter, and other social media reshape workplaces and accelerate traditional stress factors, such as information overload, the invasion of work into the private domain, and...
Conference Paper
In this paper we discuss the inclusionary poten-tials of participation in social media networks for the unemployed, both with regard to alleviation of the perception of being left behind by society, as well as the consequences on subjective well-being. Based on interviews with unemployed individuals, we show by the example of 809 facebook users tha...
Conference Paper
This article presents research into the compensating potential of social media for the psychological consequences of job loss. In particular the questions to be answered are whether subjective well-being as well as perceived exclusion are influenced by involvement in social media, and whether age as a context variable may moderate these influences....
Conference Paper
Full-text available
For many years, the Internet has been heralded as a boon to citizen participation in political decision-making (White, 1997). Research has been quick to explore whether new technologies facilitate direct participation and create access for non-elite citizens (Stromer-Galley, 2000; Davis, 1999; Hacker, 1996). In fact, Internet use has repeatedly bee...

Social media have enriched the communication profession with new and immediate ways of stakeholder interaction. Along with new possibilities also come challenges – as professionals are engaging in real-time conversations with their audiences on Facebook, Twitter, blogs and the like, they have to learn to mentally cope with an oversupply of possibly...
Conference Paper
For decades, information has been a key resource of our society. Recently, with the rise of Social Media, the nature of information and information diffusion has changed, thus obliging the workforce to cope with new premises. New technologies, applications and media channels enable practitioners to access more information than ever before. At the s...
Conference Paper
The ongoing digitalization affects all aspects of life, from the private to the professional sphere - on an individual, organizational and societal level. However, little is known about how marginalized groups, such as the unemployed, use the Internet in general or social media in particular and how they use them to build more strategic social rela...
Conference Paper
The advent of social media has changed the information environment drastically over the past 10 years. The new Internet is characterized by the vital participation of its users and comprises a variety of tools and sites for shared information creation and updating as well as social networking and communication (Bawden, 2008).
