Dear Socnetters,

I am compiling an updated bibliography concerning studies of the use of 
social media by social movements, political protests and contentious 

I am mainly interested in the role of social network sites such as 
Facebook and its counterparts by civic and political activists in 
various countries (e.g., Vkontakte & LiveJournal in Russia), but I will 
also welcome references to studies of YouTube, Twitter and other 
relevant social media.

Please send your kind replies– titled ‘SNS studies’ – directly to my 
e-mail address below. Having compiled the bibliography, I will post the 
results to this list.

Thank you in advance,

Markku Lonkila
