Dear all

I think some important dimensions are missing such as the decentralised
social networks which are summing up the increasingly numerous social media
alternatives experimenting around the possibilities driven by the federated
social wed and the distributed social web

it would be a pity to let them out of the picture
for more information check out for instance:

> From: Lisbeth Rogers [mailto:politics at golsonmedia.com]
>
> Greetings,
>
> We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the *Encyclopedia of
> Social Media and Politics*, a new 2-volume reference to be published by CQ
> Press/SAGE Reference in 2013.
>
> *Please see the list of topics currently available for assignment
> following this message below*
>
> Social media are revolutionizing and galvanizing politics in the United
> States and around the world. Old modes and methods of political
> communication from elites to the masses (top down) and from the masses to
> elites (bottom up) are being rapidly displaced by new social media, and
> activists are building new movements and protests using social media to
> alter mainstream political agendas.
>
> Members of Congress now routinely turn to Twitter to spar with partisan
> opponents or broadcast messages to constituents, and use YouTube to post
> their latest campaign advertisements.
>
> The power of social media in politics is not isolated to the United States.
>
> In the popular uprisings triggered by the Arab Spring social media have
> played an enormous part in the organizing of protests and keeping dissident
> voices from being completely stifled by repressive regimes, despite
> attempts by those regimes to restrict access to the Internet and social
> media platforms or technologies. In approximately 400 signed articles, this
> 2-volume reference work will cover the phenomenon of social media and
> politics in an A-to-Z format.
>
> * *
>
> This comprehensive project will be published by CQ Press/SAGE Reference
> and will be marketed to academic and public libraries as a print and
> digital product available to students via the library's electronic
> services. The General Editor, who will be reviewing each submission to the
> project, is Dr. Kerric Harvey, Center for Innovative Media, George
> Washington University.
>
> We are currently making assignments with a deadline for submissions of
> November 1, 2012.
>
> If you are interested in contributing to this cutting-edge reference, it
> is a unique opportunity to contribute to the contemporary literature,
> redefining sociological issues in today's terms. Moreover, it can be a
> notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing
> credits. CQ Press/SAGE Publications offers an honorarium ranging from SAGE
> book credits for smaller articles up to a free set of the printed product
