Social Media as Personal Informatics: Empowerment through Self-Reflection
Airi Lampinen, Jesse Haapoja, Johannes Koponen, Juha Leppanen
This paper examines personal informatics in the context of online news reading and social media. We use the user profiles (“media fingerprints”) of the online feature story service Scoopinion (www.scoopinion.org) as an empirical entry point to discussing how online behavioral tracking in new media can be used to empower users through self-reflection. We argue that there is potential to leverage the vast sets of data that online services collect and manage for the personal benefit of individuals who choose to engage with social media but often find it hard to follow and control what data about them are available and who has access to it.
