Post-Privacy Culture PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Post-Privacy Culture free pdf We cannot imagine social and political life without Facebook and Twitter. We consult our health problems on blogs and forums instead of believing doctors. And we check the weather not by looking outside the window but by using an appropriate application in our smartphone. Life in cyberculture is totally different from life a few decades ago, and life with mobile media is far more different from life few years ago with Internet only. We hardly believe that it was ever possible to survive without new media and constant and instant access to information. Yet, somewhere on the way we lost our privacy and intimacy and found the feeling of acting as a global virtual community. As for the individualist Western culture this is a huge change.
