Stalkers, rapists, and murderers.... These criminals have all discovered uncharted territory through the open door of the internet, and victims are piling up in their deadly playground. Murder. Kidnapping. Cannibalism. Suicide. All of these themes can be found in this collection of true stories about killers who have used the internet to locate, lure, stalk, or exploit their victims. As you read through the case files of this book, you will learn about the shocking lives led by online predators from all around the world.

Anyone can fall victim to an online killer, even if the perpetrator is living on the other half of the earth. How can you protect yourself from such dangers? In the last chapter of the book, learn about the importance of online privacy and how to avoid sharing personal information online, a potentially dangerous and deadly act.

Popular music is not simply a series of musicians, moments, genres or recordings. Audiences matter; and the most ardent audience members are the fans. To be a fan is to feel a connection with music. The study of fandom has begun to emerge as a vital strand of academic research, one that offers a fresh perspective on the nature of music culture. Dedicated to Music investigates fan identities and practices in different contexts and in relation to different bands and artists. Through a series of empirical case studies the book reflects a diverse array of objects and perspectives associated with this vibrant new field of study. Contributors examine how fans negotiate their identities and actively pursue their particular interests, touching on a range of issues including cultural capital, generational memory, gender, fan fiction and the use of new media. This book was originally published as two special issues of Popular Music and Society.

The corporate and the social are crucial themes of our times. In the first decade of the twenty-first century, both individual lives and society were shaped by capitalist crisis and the rise of social media. But what marks the distinctively social character of "social media"? And how does it relate to the wider social and economic context of contemporary capitalism? The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is based on the idea that a socially responsible capitalism is possible; this suggests that capitalist media corporations can not only enable social interaction and cooperation but also be socially responsible. This book provides a critical and provocative perspective on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in media and communication industries. It examines both the academic discourse on CSR and actual corporate practices in the media sector, offering a double critique that reveals contradictions between corporate interests and social responsibilities. Marisol Sandoval’s political economic analysis of Apple, AT&T, Google, HP, Microsoft, News Corp, The Walt Disney Company and Vivendi shows that media and communication in the twenty-first century are confronted with fundamental social responsibility challenges. From software patents and intellectual property rights to privacy on the Internet, from working conditions in electronics manufacturing to hidden flows of eWaste – this book encourages the reader to explore the multifaceted social (ir)responsibilities that shape commercial media landscapes today. It makes a compelling argument for thinking beyond the corporate in order to envision and bring about truly social media. It will interest students and scholars of media studies, cultural industry studies, sociology, information society studies, organization studies, political economy, business and management.

The voluminous contemporary critical work on English Renaissance androgyny and transvestism debates has not fully uncovered the ancient Greek and Roman roots of the gender controversy. Erotic Beasts and Social Monsters argues that the variant Renaissance views on the androgyne's symbolism are, in fact, best understood with reference to classical representations of the double-sexed or gender-baffled figure, and with the classical merging of that figure with images of beasts and monsters. Grace Tiffany's discussion of ancient beast-androgynes draws on satire as well as myth, citing Archilochus alongside Homer, Aristophanes with Euripides, and Juvenal next to Ovid and Apuleius. She thus illuminates a gender dispute as old as Western culture itself.

Fans constitute a very special kind of audience. They have been marginalized, ridiculed and stigmatized, yet at the same time they seem to represent the vanguard of new relationships with and within the media. ‘Participatory culture’ has become the new normative standard. Concepts derived from early fan studies, such as transmedial storytelling and co-creation, are now the standard fare of journalism and marketing text books alike. Indeed, usage of the word fan has become ubiquitous. The Ashgate Research Companion to Fan Cultures problematizes this exaltation of fans and offers a comprehensive examination of the current state of the field. Bringing together the latest international research, it explores the conceptualization of ‘the fan’ and the significance of relationships between fans and producers, with particular attention to the intersection between online spaces and offline places. The twenty-two chapters of this volume elucidate the key themes of the fan studies vernacular. As the contributing authors draw from recent empirical work around the globe, the book provides fresh insights and innovative angles on the latest developments within fan cultures, both online and offline. Because the volume is specifically set up as companion for researchers, the chapters include recommendations for the further study of fan cultures. As such, it represents an essential reference volume for researchers and scholars in the fields of cultural and media studies, communication, cultural geography and the sociology of culture.

Why have customers when you can have FANS? Everything you need to leverage the power of brand evangelists FOREWORD BY KATHY SIERRA, COCREATOR OF THE HEAD FIRST BOOK SERIES Think Like a Rock Star shows you how to connect and engage with customers both online and offline to create a truly fan-centric brand using case studies of rock stars, including: TAYLOR SWIFT--who cultivates an army of devoted fans by constantly devising amazing experiences for them JOHNNY CASH--who was so passionate about his fans that he even followed them to jail LADY GAGA--who has built a financial empire by becoming a fan of her Little Monsters Think Like a Rock Star explains how to apply these lessons to develop advocates of any type of brand, who will increase profits and grow your business. It also identifies easily replicable marketing strategies of top brands, such as Dell, Ford, Patagonia, and Red Bull, that have successfully turned customers into loyal fans. It is an indispensable tool for any marketing professional. Praise for Think Like a Rock Star: "There's a theory in music that if a musician has '1,000 true fans' (credit: Kevin Kelly), they've created a sustainable and full-time music career due to the passion, buying power, and advocacy of those 1,000 fans. Think Like a Rock Star takes that principle, and shows companies the exact steps they need to take to connect with their fans, and the business value of doing so. Highly recommended!" -- Katie Morse, Social Marketing Manager at Billboard "Mack Collier shares great brand-building insights and real-world successes to show us how brands can and are driving real business growth by connecting with their most passionate customers. More than a compelling read, this book is a step-by-step guide for any brand to discover and ignite its fans." -- John Pope, Director of Communications at Nokia "Mack Collier knows the simple but powerful truth: in the social economy, your ability to acquire new customers will depend on your ability to delight your current customers and convert them into passionate fans of your brand. He shows you why; he shows you how; he inspires you to think like a rock star. Buy this book! Stop managing campaigns and start building movements!" -- Ekaterina Walter, Social Innovator at Intel and bestselling author of Think Like Zuck: The Five Business Secrets of Facebook's Improbably Brilliant CEO Mark Zuckerberg "You thought that rock stars and business successes focus only on themselves. Nothing could be further from the truth. The real success stories come from people who focus on others. To lead is to serve, and to serve effectively, you need to know your customers. Mack Collier gets that and highlights it well in this book." -- Scott Monty, Global Head of Social Media at Ford Motor Company "'Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse' is a brilliant mock-awareness campaign produced by the CDC that earned 30,000 views on the first day it was published. Mack Collier shares insights from case studies such as this, showing how even conservative brands can create YouTube sensations, while humanizing the brand along the way. I've applied this type of approach on social campaigns at IBM and Cisco, and know firsthand that any brand can learn a great deal from these lessons." -- Tim Washer, Senior Marketing Manager of Social Media at Cisco "If you're ready to take the plunge and commit yourself to building a better business, together with your customers, then Think Like a Rock Star is your guidebook to achieving it! Simple, jargon-free, and true to Mack Collier's authentic style, this book explains exactly why your brand needs fans and not customers, and how you can turn your most enthusiastic ones into powerful brand advocates. Mack delivers his passion for brand advocacy, knowledge of customer-centric marketing, and in-depth understanding of what makes the most devoted of fans tick in language we can all relate to." "Fun to read, Think Like a Rock Star is guaranteed to give you numerous A-ha! moments that will inspire you to do better. By the end of this book, you'll be thinking of marketing and engagement strategies from the viewpoint of a fan, and you'll know what you need to do to connect with them." "I love this book for many reasons, but most of all because for every 'why,' there is a 'how'! The case studies, tips, and social media advice are perfectly aligned with Mack's underlying mission of helping brands understand the true value of their most passionate customers. It's a must read for modern-day marketers! I highly recommend you purchase multiple copies: one for you and one for each member of your team." -- Kelly Hungerford, Community Manager at Paper.Li

The church is unsure of itself in the twenty-first century's media culture. Some Christians denounce digital media while others embrace the latest gadgets and apps as soon as they appear. Many of us are stumbling along amidst the tweets, status updates, podcasts, and blog posts, wondering if we have ventured into a realm beyond the scope of biblical wisdom. Though there is such a thing as "new media," Andrew Byers reminds us that the actual concept of media is ancient, theological, and even biblical. In fact, there is such a thing as the media of God. "TheoMedia" are means by which God communicates and reveals himself--creation, divine speech, inspired writings, the visual symbol of the cross, and more. Christians are actually called to media saturation. But the media that are to most prominently saturate our lives are the media of God. If God creates and uses media, then Scripture provides a theological logic by which we can create and use media in the digital age. This book is not an unqualified endorsement of the latest media products or a tirade against media technology. Instead, Byers calls us to rethink our understanding of media in terms of the media of God in the biblical story of redemption.

Serial murderers generate an abundance of public interest, media coverage, and law enforcement attention, yet after decades of studies, serial murder researchers have been unable to answer the most important question: Why? Providing a unique and comprehensive exploration, Creating Cultural Monsters: Serial Murder in America explains connections between American culture and the incidence of serial murder, including reasons why most identified serial murderers are white, male Americans. It describes the omnipresence of serial murder in American media and investigates what it would take to decrease its occurrence. Presenting empirically supported arguments that have the potential to revolutionize how serial murder is understood, studied, and investigated, this volume: Places the serial murder phenomenon in a cultural context, promoting qualitative understanding and the potential for reducing its frequency Includes an illustrated model that explains how people utilize cultural values to construct lines of action according to their cultural competencies Demonstrates how the American cultural milieu fosters serial murder and the creation of white male serial murderers Provides a critique of the American mass media’s role in the development and notoriety of serial murder Describes the framework on which the majority of definitions of serial murder are based Drawn from years of dedicated research of Dr. Julie B. Wiest, this volume presents a new approach to the study of U.S. serial murder, offers important implications for law enforcement and mass media, and forms a basis for future research on serial murder, murder, and violence in the U.S. and in other nations.

The Gothic is flourishing not just in Stephen King's novels and Quentin Tarantino's films, but also in the media renderings of phenomena like the O J Simpson case, and in characterizations of terrorism. This collection of essays critically interrogates contemporary visualizations of the Gothic and the monstrous in film and media.
