Abstract

There are few things more intimately personal than our memories. However, as more of human experience becomes mediated through social media, memories have become a significant resource for social media companies to exploit. Drawing on their new book Social Media and the Automatic Production of Memory, David Beer and Ben Jacobsen explore how a social media logic has intertwined itself into our memories and the implications this has for how we remember individually and collectively.
