I am Simon Lindgren, a Professor of Sociology at Umeå University in Sweden. My research is about how people interact and organise on the Internet and through social media. I am the author of New Noise (2013) and the editor of Hybrid Media Culture (2013). I analyse and write about things like Internet activism, digital piracy, social support online, subcultural creativity and learning, popular culture and visual politics. I am also interested in developing mixed-methods strategies and tools for analysing discursive and social network dimensions of people's uses of digital media.
