    Data and Agency.Jose van Dijck, Thomas Poell & Helen Kennedy - 2015 - Big Data and Society 2 (2).
    This introduction to the special issue on data and agency argues that datafication should not only be understood as the process of collecting and analysing data about Internet users, but also as feeding such data back to users, enabling them to orient themselves in the world.
