I’ve been thinking about this ever since you mentioned it on Twitter last week - and I still have no answer! I realized that I have no solid definition of what a Citizen is, so I had to start there. As best as I’ve been able to think it through so far, I think a Citizen is someone who has respect for the world and community around him or her - whether referring to how they interact with other people or with the physical world around them. Online, I think this echoes your thoughts about etiquette and being of good character. To go a bit beyond content curation, I think a citizen is someone who takes an active interest in improving their community - by sharing information, and also by helping others. I once heard a quote, but I’m not sure who said it: “Lift as you climb.” The idea that as the conditions of your life improve (professional, financial, knowledge, etc.) you endeavor to I only disagree with you somewhat on your first point in that I don’t personally think being a digital citizen means being active in multiple space. Certainly being aware of different spaces but I think many people tend to be really active in just one or two spaces - the ones where they feel they can have the most impact (and also get the most benefit; can’t a A couple of ideas I’ve wrestled with: anonymity and social norms. What is socially acceptable, and who defines it? Music torrents are a great example of this; it’s accepted that a good number of otherwise law-abiding citizens have also torrented music and movies. Just like making mix tapes was once widely accepted, but still not legal. How does that sort of activity figure in? Can you be a citizen, but be nameless? My first thought was no, but then I realized I know a lot of people who do good thing (online and offline), but who try to maintain their privacy with pseudonyms, etc. Anonymity used to be much easier 10+ years ago, now many people comfortably share their information online - or share it without realizing it. But wha Any ways, thanks for putting out a really thought-provoking question! @charliprangley honestly, I have no idea what a digital citizen is. a person on the internet? :) Hi. Sure I’d be glad to help. I think a digital citizen is someone who is willing to use the power of the internet and the social media to help, contribute and aid the wider community, on various scales. The recent British riots have shone an almost grey light over social media, and almost cast out any positives. The last week has proven to me that Digital Citizenship is something that is I hope that was of some help.... Leon

Sorry for the delay. Argh. Everything is so busy at the moment. So, how would I define a digital citizen? It’s an interesting question. Obviously in relation to the advances we are seeing in technology but more so in that it suggests there are two types of citizens; one that is digital and one that isn’t. I’m not sure it’s as clean cut as that though. While most of us have a choice when it comes to whether or not we embrace the digital age, others are required to em If I was to define a ‘digital citizen’ I suppose it would be someone who is not only aware of advances in technology but someone who seeks them out, with the intention of integrating them into their lives. On the other hand you could argue that being a digital citizen is not a choice at all, but rather a position that is defined by geography and economics. My Is that what you are looking for? Let me know if you need more info. Hope that helps. Cheers CD @charliprangley Depends wildly but mostly someone who consumes, shares or creates content online.

You know, I’m not sure I’d use the phrase ‘digital citizen’, because there is no place called digital to be a citizen of. What I’d say instead is that connected users have a range of choices about positive effects of their behaviors, and that there is a spectrum from pure consumption (I only watch YouTube, and communicate with no one) to in-group communic Kefeya movement in Egypt.) The higher up that stack, the more the behavior approaches that of citizenship, which is to say that of someone whose participation helps hold society together as a public good, rather than simply as a market participant. -c @charliprangley i have no idea. Never heard that term. Unfortunately, I dont have too much of a definition of this term - please don’t hold it against me! Best, Nicholas. @charliprangley everyone who is alive In 2012 @charliprangley sure but not soon I would think of anyone creating content on the web as a digital citizen. You should really chat with Adrian Chan (@gravity7) he is one of the most intense thinkers on this topic I know. Thanks! Joe

A digital citizen is one who understands he or she can change the world using the interconnected tools. We often forget that centuries have gone by with most humans have no access to the means to broadcast their ideas, goals, or discontents. Those days are irrevocably over and the sooner we realize the power we have - however limited it may seem on th

Thanks for the kind words. I will give your question some thought and answer within a day or so. We just bought a new Mac so both our home computers (wife and I) are at the Mac store. Can you give me more of a sense of the angle/theme of your work? Imo, one can be a digital citizen in one sense by simply utilizing digital tools. The technology itself isn’t inherently good, evil, or otherwise. Do you have a working definition of what a digital citizen could/should look like? Best of luck on your work, JCH Sorry I haven’t responded sooner. Got caught up with work stuff. I read your definition and understood it, but I think where you’ll get a lot more mileage is defining what makes up a “good character” and how someone can curate “content they think is interesting and worth sharing.” I put quotes around these two things because my definition of ‘good character’ and yours could be completely different. Likewise, typicall So if you hone in on those two ideas - character and content, I think you’d do a great service of defining the actions someone takes to be an active online/digital citizen versus inactive. Or, if they have standards for how they create/share content (thinking here of traditional journalists who research their sources, work to be objective, etc) they could be deem Klout, in one way, would be a measure if someone is an active citizen--they create enough content and it’s retweeted so it proves they’re active. It may not be ‘good’ in the sense that I may not think Justin Bieber worthy of a 100 Klout score. But lots of folks like him, and I can’t/shouldn’t deny them their right to their preferences. I think you could measure netiquette, however. It would be really hard, but how often does a person RT as a thank you for past RT’s from that person? How often/quickly do you respond to comments made on your blog? Etc. Another topic along these lines, and it’s a big one, is the notion of anonymity online. Most people feel it’s bad digital citizenry to remain anonymous as you don’t have any real/perceived stakes in what you say. You could be anyone just having a lark and making fun of people. Pseudonyms are a little better, as a person’s identity is attached to that pseudo Hope some of this helps and happy to clarify as needed. Best of luck and thanks again for getting in touch, JCH @charliprangley This may sound simplistic but we’re all digital citizens A digital citizen, huh? Well, I would define a digital citizen as one who shares their opinions openly via whatever medium they so choose, but also (and more importantly) defends that ability to share. Freedom of speech is just as important online as it is in print or any other public space. Let me know if you want me to dive a little deeper—I fear getting too long-winded. Good luck! B @charliprangley finally getting back to you... this pretty well captures my thoughts on digital citizenship:

Sorry for the delay. Lollapalooza! I would define a digital citizen as someone who uses the internet to the full extent of its abilities. To a digital citizen - the internet is the most powerful tool in life. When the internet is down, life is down. Digital citizens are constantly connected to the internet by mobile phone, laptop, tablet, desktop, etc. If you find yourself checking intstagram, twitter, tu Does this help at all? I first have to be honest and say that I haven’t thought all that much about the concept of digital citizenship! But I guess one of the things I was trying to express in that piece, and which may be relevant to your work, is that “internet user” seems to imply some act that you go and do — use the internet — and then stop and get on with the “rest of your life”. Whereas it seems clear that where we’re headed, for good or ill, is actually towards a situation where “being online” is an intrinsic part of daily existence, happening simultaneously with face-to-face interactions, and whether or not we happen to be looking at a screen at any given time. So in a sense I suppose that expresses one facet of “digital citizenship” — that we live *in* this rather than dipping into it every so often. The other nuance of the word “citizenship”, I guess, is the idea that it’s important to look at who has the power and the responsibility in this new always-online world. It clearly has huge democratic potential, but also huge potential for being co-opted and harnessed by big business and/or non-democratic governments, so “digital citizen” also implies to me a situation in which everyone who’s existing online-all-the-time also has a say in the way that this unfolds, rather than being mere *subjects* of Google and Facebook etc! I hope that helps — and the best of luck with your project. Oliver Glad to hear my essay was inspirational! I’d start with the definition of a citizen. That can mean a lot of things, from a mere inhabitant of a geographical region or political entity, to someone who is actively engaged, a participant in the governance and development of the body politic to which they belong. So who’s a digital citizen? It could be someone who’s merely online and present: someone who has the rights and responsibilities that accrue to everyone naturally. Or it could refer to someone who is an active participant in the digital world, someone who cares about the digital future and wants to have a voice in its direction. - Owen Thanks for your note. I’d define and digital citizen as a producer rather than simply a passive consumer. I’m thinking about Clay Shirky and his theory about LOL cats. I’d go a step further and say that a digital citizen is actually a purposeful producer too. Instead of simply creating for the sake of creation, a digital citizen makes things with inherent value. I think that online citizenship is a refined meritocracy and requires that individuals create real value in order to be heard. That said, I think that groups can create that ideas. I hope that helps. paddy

one of my colleagues on this Future of Money project i worked on last year has just put together a cool video you might enjoy - It Becomes Public - hmm... obviously an internet user and a digital citizen are completely different things. for one thing, the internet is a communication device - it’s just pipes. how a person’s sense of personal and group identity changes, how culture shifts, how they choose to communicate and the corresponding intentions behind those interactions, is something else. from my personal experience, i see the web as a virtual sandbox where boundaries can dissolve, where we can find safe spaces to experiment, play, and explore who we are as human individuals and as a collective. it tears down the boundaries between us - there are no national borders, no age, no race, no institutions, no religion. (sure.... those things are i but just because it’s online doesn’t mean it’s not real. i am connected to people around the planet, and i feel a closer bond and resonance and affiliation with them because of the values we have discovered that we share, the aspirations we have in common, and perhaps the vision we have for a more integrated kind of global society - than i do with my neig so i guess that is my brief thought about digital citizenship, if you want to call it that. it’s about building real tribes and relationships anywhere and with anyone on the planet. it’s based on trust, values, and choice, not a rule that is imposed by a government, religious dogma, or anyone else who would try and tell me what i should believe in or with whom i hope that’s useful -v

@charliprangley A digital citizen is someone who engages, communicates and participates in society through utilising digital technology. Obviously the degree to which one participates varies greatly – this inevitable determines whether we are classified as active or passive digital citizens. I believe that emerging generations are by default digital citizens, th older generations have tend to done). Your research sounds like it’s in a similar place to mine! Good luck with it, it’s so interesting! @charliprangley any person participating in the use of information technology I had never heard the term ‘digital citizen’ until you mentioned it in class last semester. What it means to me (in an uninformed manner) is: - Ones online presence/identity - This may be good, bad, ugly, mean, shy - just as a citizen in real life can be. - It is one online presence/identity in whatever form they want to present oneself (twitter, facebook, tumblr, flickr etc). - I imagine that one person could have several online citizenships - there is no one stopping you from acting as several different people on twitter for instance. - I am a digital citizen in that I exist online via twitter, facebook... - My mum is not a digital citizen as she doesn’t use a computer :) Hope that is helpful. Yes - I think there is a difference. An internet user is someone who does not have an online identity. They use email and e-commerce, perhaps have facebook page and may send the odd tweet but their digital world is not a united presence. Their digital presence is not an identity it is merely a disconnected presence. :) An individual using technology to improve not only themselves but also the whole of society @joefernandez @charliprangley @joefernandez a digital citizen? all I can think of is second life... I think a digital citizen has a deeper understanding of communication and etiquette on the web. Regular users are more consumer rather than contributers. I feel that a “digital citizen” has a greater responsibility to try and put thought into what the put on the internet because people will be reading/interacting with what they create. I am an IT Coordinator in a private school and will be teaching my first IT class this year. Creating effective and responsible internet users is one of my top 5 goals for the year. I would love to hear how your project comes along @joefernandez @charliprangley Citizenship is a bundle of rights and duties: access to knowledge/commuinication and ethical behaviour among them @VenessaMiemis someone with an internet connection @Venessa Miemis Anybody who uses symbols (i.e. everybody).

Thanks for the question. I haven’t thought about it until you asked. Would you say that a digital citizen is the same as a digital native? What’s the difference? I am not sure whether I like any of the two expressions because they are more dividing than building bridges. And I don’t think there is a clear cut between those who feel more convenient in the virtu As an HR specialist, I’d rather talk about virtual knowledge, skills and attitudes. Or about awareness. Maybe awareness is what truly distinguishes people - awareness on what virtual technologies add to what is out there in the world. So, maybe a digital citizen is aware about the potential and risks of virtual technologies.

I think digital citizenship is an interesting, yet extremely complex concept. To me, it is an attitude towards the life we are living today especially regarding the concept of national boundaries and they way in which we see ourselves. I don’t believe it would be feasible to get rid of national borders - simply from the perspective of legislation, this would be hig foreign to us any more. And thus it removes much of a need for national boundaries on an individual’s emotional level. We don’t have to protect ourselves from the unknown any more by dividing us into national stereotypes - we are becoming voluntary inhabitants of countries instead of automatic representants of a nation, unless we wish to do otherwise. It I think as soon as you start putting bits of yourself online, you’ve become a digital citizen. Once you start adding to the internet, and not just taking from it, then you are a political actor in that space. Does that make sense?

“User” is often the term we use to describe someone who is addicted to something. A citizen is someone who is a member of a community, often with attendant rights and responsibilities. The fundamental challenge we face is to create social media which empower rights and responsibilities of community members. If you read the terms of service of Faceb to give them the chance to hook users without investing their own capital. Giving away free addictive stuff is nothing new. Let’s follow the development of the Diaspora open source social network community to see if they can transcend this destructive model and enable more people to assert their digital citizenship.

at if was to swing back the other way? Spotted this related article on Mashable this morning:

In no means was all of the solid information I brought just down to me, it was down to the people on twitter following me aswell. So all of these people should and could be classed as model digital citizens.

She doesn’t seek out new technology or innovation but due to her geographic location (a modern city), her job, (administration), and her passion (travel) she is exposed to, and benefits from, advances in technology. While not actively choosing to, she has become a digital citizen due to all these factors.

But unless you’re a reporter who will be killed to speak out, or perhaps a young person needing help when you’re gay and terrified of people finding out before you can get help, I’m not a fan of anonymity.

ual world than others. Which brings me to the next point - is the virtual world separate from the rest, or is it a part of the “real world”?

ghly unrealistic, even utopian (at least for a long time, until mankind has become much wiser than we are now). However I believe that the internet helps us overcome stereotypes by giving us an opportunity to really connect with people from all sorts of different cultural backgrounds. It takes away the fear of the unknown, because nothing needs to be t’s up to us.

book or Google+ or Twitter you’ll see that these social media fall short for exactly this reason; namely, that they treat the members of their community as “users” and strip them of most of their rights. Consider how a drug dealer makes money; drugs are the medium and the users are the product - drug dealers often “front” drugs to smaller dealers in order

It seems clear that where we’re headed, for good or ill, is actually towards a situation where “being online” is an intrinsic part of daily existence, happening simultaneously with face-to-face interactions, and whether or not we happen to be looking at a screen at any given time. @oliverburkeman


Is the virtual world separate from the rest, or is it a part of the “real world”?

Just because it’s online doesn’t mean it’s not real. @VenessaMiemis

“Real world” should not be used as the opposite to “digital world” as it does imply that things that take place online are not real.


“Internet user” seems to imply some act that you go and do – use the internet – and then stop and get on with the “rest of your life”. @oliverburkeman

53. See a tweet with content that you’d like to check out later? Ma later. 4. Please don’t link your Foursquare and Twitter accounts. Your Twitter followers signed up for your Twitter content, not the fact that you just became the mayor of Starbucks. 54. Avoid using underscores and long, jumbled number sequences 5. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was your Twitter account. Developing a strong following takes time and effort. 55. Don’t RT something with comment that is better suited for an 6.

People don’t care what you’re doing, they care what you’re see 9. Don’t tweet that you are bored. Now I am too. 59. If you are going to tweet a long quote, use Twitlonger. Don’t co 10. If you follow someone, don’t be offended if they don’t follow you back. Not everyone plays for “Team Followback.” Earn their follow from strong, periodic @replies if you feel that you have something to offer. 60. Short tweets stand out. Try saying something poignant in 50 c 11. Don’t be tempted by the speed of Twitter. Take a breath before each tweet and ask, “If I was a follower, would I want to read this?” If not, delete it. 61. If you’re a journalist, take it easy on the pre-promotion. Readi 12. Unless you are a pro athlete, don’t tell me that you are at the gym. I get it, you work out. 62.

I average more than 40 tweets a day. background/avatar/bio if you’re looking to switch things up.

I think a digital citizen has a deeper understanding of communication and etiquette on the web.

65. Don’t give your followers a play-by-play or box score of a sport

17. Do not use a default Twitter background. Instead, use an image or photo that complements your interests or personality.

66. Go easy on the Instagrams. Yes, your iPhone takes pretty good

18. Follow Friday’s are perhaps the emptiest tweets on all of Twitter, unless you tell me why they deserve my follow.

67. Show your gratitude when a company goes above and beyond

19. Want to give your recommendation more oomph? Do it on Tuesday; nobody is expecting it.

68. When mentioning a person or brand, use their Twitter handle i

75. Following athletes/celebrities is usually pointless. Twitter is ab timeline.

27. Make good use of your Twitter bio space. “Mother, Sister, Daughter, Lover of Life” does absolutely nothing to spark someone’s interest.

76. Run a company? Don’t have your employees sign the tweets w 28. Don’t get offended if someone unfollows you. Instead, use it as a learning experience. Perhaps your tweets need some tweaking. Everyone is entitled to a trial run before purchasing your product. 77. Have a good tweet at 3:17AM? If you’re not the first to tweet t 29. People love screengrabs. Those that are experts at capturing the perfect TV shot (like @bubbaprog and @jose3030) do well on Twitter. 78. Use a real location in your bio, not a state of mind or somethin 30. Know when something has reached a critical mass. Look around to see if your entire timeline has tweeted the same quote. Hold back. 79. Have 3 good tweets to send out that aren’t time sensitive? Sch 31. Know why people follow you. If you’re a foodie, don’t send 20 Florida Marlins tweets on a single night. 80. Network! Twitter allows you to connect with just about anyone 32. Instead of complaining about spam bots offering you free iPads, take 3 seconds and report them as spam. Help solve the problem. 81. Don’t plainly RT someone; add your touch to the tweet - even 33. Check out your followers. If someone’s bio looks interesting, follow them. @JosephChristie 82. Choosing a new Twitter name? Again, keep it short. Do the talk 34. Go through who you’re following every few months. Weed out the bad, the non-existent & those you feel don’t suit your interests. 83. When someone visits your account, your tweets are your resum 35. If you get retweeted, don’t automatically expect new followers. People evaluate your feed before following, so it’s not an automatic process. 84. Stop forming your tweets as hypothetical letters to inanimate o 36. Twitter Search may be the most valuable search engine on the Internet. Use it. 85. If you have a critical mass of followers, use amount of retweet 37. Always put your comment before the RT.

@nkapica Of coarse ive heard about copywright, im GenY we breach copywright daily. I also know how to work around it without getting caught

@nkapica Also id rather spend my money elsewhere when i have the skills to find downloads for files i need.

@thomaslebas like ive said i know and understandbhow copywright works so i dont know how many more people need to tell me

@nkapica – 13 Aug

@MattyEales – 14 Aug

@nkapica is your problem with pirating typefaces? Or piracy in general. Musicans, Actors, and Authors all work for a living as well...

@nkapica yet they seem to survive. Its the 21st century, piracy happens and the world hasnt stopped spinning

@thomaslebas because when you hear about them bitching about having no money to pay rent, ourchasing typefaces seems rather superfluous

I didnt know so many people took tweets so seriously @MattyEales – 14 Aug

@MattyEales Dude, you are so retarded, bragging about stealing fonts and Adobe CS. We can still make screenshots of our Twitter history..

@MattyEales Problem is you can be tracked down. I wouldn’t mess with @H_FJ. They’re serious about stealing their wares (and rightly so).

@BaldCondensed – 14 Aug

@BaldCondensed – 14 Aug

Tracking the spread of a foolish tweet. The incident appeared on the timelines of 60 different account from at least 10 different countries and possibly reached up to 394,976 people.

@MattyEales — cw1vc4h —Type designers are just like you and have to work for a living — or do you give your work away for free?


@espiekermann @hello_juliana


@MattyEales Your bragging about being a common thief has me a little puzzled. You call yourself a creative? @BaldCondensed – 14 Aug

@H_FJ quick question, will there ever be a student pricing on typefaces? I want to use your beautiful faces legally.


@H_FJ But there’s no mechanism to prevent a shamed user from deleting and then setting up a new (reputation-free) account.

Amazing: a guy proudly admits to stealing fonts, and within 24 hours he’s shamed off of Twitter altogether. #thesocialcontract

@H_FJ the grand theft typo was short-lived, indeed :-)


@fadebiaye – 15 Aug




@H_FJ – 15 Aug



The discussion of the issue raised some good points, including student pricing for fonts, and the piracy culture that exists today; the fact that many Twitter users probably have stolen @H_FJ fonts, but @MattyEales is the one who admitted it.

@coca222454 – 15 Aug


You never know who will see your tweets, or how far they will spread. In this incident the community felt that what @MattyEales had admitted to was unethical, so they did their best to make the copyright holder aware of his actions.

fyi #coca454 RT @H_FJ: Amazing: a guy proudly admits to stealing fonts, and within 24 hours he’s shamed of… (cont)

i gotta say, now is when it shows that any #coca454 students who don’t use twitter are really missing out!

can someone tell me where #coca454454 is going to be happening on sunday?
