Crawling and scraping, the ambient social network creates a portrait of who we are, and maps our demographic character. Where once surveillance technologies were associated with the government and military, the web has fostered a participatory and less optically driven means of monitoring and monetizing our lived experiences. This book explores current debates on privacy and surveillance in the digital age.
