Abstract or Description

This chapter considers the platformised future of media work affecting all media and communication professions, both old and new. The chapter first maps the contours of digital platforms, before outlining their jurisdictional battles with media publishers, and with the promotional industries. The chapter then shifts the discussion to the challenges facing individual media workers and the impact of datafication on their professional aspirations and pursuits.
In exploring the shifting sands of media work the chapter poses this question: Where do the professional boundaries lie in the platformised future of media work?
