Current technological developments have led to a shift in focus from information to the communication of information; the most visible evidence of this shift is the development of social networking sites that enable individuals to contribute and share information. This is the popular tip of a more fundamental iceberg, which has implications for privacy, security, governance, digital divide, surveillance, and increased dependency of individuals on technology and the organisations which design, produce, and support such technologies.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Edward Elgar||Start page:||83||End page:||97||Keywords:||Information technology; Information systems; Communication; Social networking||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||Hearn, G., Rooney, D.
