Stories are shared by millions of people online every day. They post and re-post interactions as they re-tell and respond to large-scale mediated events. These stories are important as they can bring people together, or polarise them in opposing groups. Narratives Online explores this new genre - the shared story - and uses carefully chosen case-studies to illustrate the complex processes of sharing as they are shaped by four international social media contexts: Wikipedia, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Building on discourse analytic research, Ruth Page develops a new framework - 'Mediated Narrative Analysis' - to address the large scale, multimodal nature of online narratives, helping researchers interpret the micro- and macro-level politics that are played out in computer-mediated communication.Read more
- Enables readers to understand how large-scale stories are created and consumed online

Reviews & endorsements
'A box of delights: structured around case-studies from Wikipedia, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook, this ambitious book succeeds in interweaving insights from a broad range of approaches to narrative analysis in a multi-faceted approach, whilst retaining coherence and lucidity of method and argument throughout. A much-needed, systematic and rigorous account of how stories are shared on social media as multimodal and multi-authored discourse activities, which deserves to be shared widely!' Alexandra Georgakopoulou-Nunes, King’s College LondonSee more reviews
