The media and technology landscape is changing fundamentally, with a shift from mass media and personal media to media for mass self-communication. Within this transitional digital media ecosystem we aim to understand if and how users and communities are empowered - as proclaimed in Web 2.0 manifestos - or on the contrary are becoming disempowered. The presentation will discuss how this balance is shifting on a conceptual and a practical level, in co-evolution with technological, economic and social changes. This is demonstrated by issues of dataveillance and privacy.
