The shitstorm represents an authentic phenomenon of digital communication.—from In the Swarm

Digital communication & social truyền thông media have sầu taken over our lives. In this contrarian reflection on digitized life, Byung-Chul Han counters the cheerleaders for Twitter revolutions và Facebook activism by arguing that digital communication is in fact responsible for the disintegration of community và public space and is slowly eroding any possibility for real political action và meaningful political discourse. In the predigital, analog era, by the time an angry letter to lớn the editor had been composed, mailed, và received, the immediate agitation had passed. Today, digital communication enables instantaneous, impulsive sầu reaction, meant to express & stir up outrage on the spot. “The shitstorm,” writes Han, ”represents an authentic phenomenon of digital communication.”

Meanwhile, the public, the senders and receivers of these communications have sầu become a digital swarm—not a mass, or a crowd, or Negri và Hardt"s antiquated notion of a “multitude,” but a phối of isolated individuals incapable of forming a “we,” incapable of calling dominant power relations into lớn question, incapable of formulating a future because of an obsession with the present. The digital swarm is a fragmented entity that can focus on individual persons only in order to make them an object of scandal.

Han, one of the most widely read philosophers in Europe today, describes a society in which information has overrun thought, in which the same algorithms are employed by Facebook, the stochồng market, & the intelligence services. Democracy is under threat because digital communication has made freedom & control indistinguishable. Big Brother has been succeeded by Big Data.
