Abstract or Description

This article will show that in the study of social media activism we need to critically investigate the relationship between political data flows and digital traces and to highlight the multiple and complex ways in which social media use is tightly interconnected to the processes of political profiling. The scope of this article is one of openness and inquiry. Its aim is to explore the need to reflect on political data flows across and beyond social media platforms. Its goal is to set the tone for the emergence of new, and exciting research in the field.
