"Memes, trolling and weird internet jokes are becoming part of the everyday language of contemporary societies, whether occupying centre stage in mainstream politics or scuttling around in the darkest corners of the web. In this book, two leading scholars of digital communication have joined forces, in turn bringing folklore together with rigorously forensic studies of internet culture to create a new theoretical vocabulary for understanding, researching and teaching the Internet?s multiple vernaculars." Jean Burgess, Queensland University of Technology "From pranks and tasteless jokes to political propaganda, it?s never been more important to face how online media give rise to and amplify the longstanding communal practices that lie between play and hate, fun and cruelty. Like its subject, this book is both entertaining and disturbing. It?s an honest, uneasy, and essential reckoning. You?ll laugh, feel bad you did, and understand." Nancy Baym, Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research
