What People are Saying About This
“Georgakopoulou, Iversen and Stage offer compelling evidence of how metrics are not just at the heart of stories; they often convey the heart behind stories of struggle, pain, and happiness. Deeply original and engaging.” Zizi Papacharissi, University of Illinois, USA
“Quantified Storytelling offers a ground-breaking analysis of “how we tell now” by exploring the reciprocal influences of metrics and storytelling in social media.”James Phelan, Ohio State University, USA
“The authors skillfully show how quantification has become a central element of narrative and status on social media, shaping content in the quest for influence.” Deborah Lupton, University of New South Wales, Australia
“Quantified Storytelling is challenging, original, thought-provoking work. Merging their expertise in language, media and narrative studies, the authors drive home the need for truly interdisciplinary research on the algorithmic transformations of storytelling in a social media world.” Jannis Androutsopoulos, Universität Hamburg, Germany
