This paper studies different aspects of a linguo-political conflict concerned with choosing between two Russian toponymic variants – Belorussia and Belarus’ as well as adjectives belorusskij (Belorussian) and belarus(s)kij (Belarusian) and ethnonyms belorus and belarus. The core of the problem is that in the Russian language of Russia the variant Belorussia is used, which is considered to be insulting by many Belarusians, who prefer to use the variant Belarus while speaking Russian. In an attempt to understand the structure of this conflict, we analyze how and why the toponym Belarus appeared and spread through the newspapers of 1990-s, study the data from two online polls and the distribution of some words derived from the two toponymic variants, and finally discuss the scenarios of conflict communication in discussions in various social media. One of the polls shows the social distribution of the two toponymic variants and the other examines the attitude of the Belarusians towards the toponym Belorussia and its derivates. We show that each side of the conflict has its own limited set of ideas that reappear in conflict communication in comments under different articles on the Internet.
Internet Studies is an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary field of fundamental and applied research that integrate different research disciplines with a common object, that is the Internet. This review article gives a definition and a brief description of the structure of Internet Studies as part of the social sciences and introduces research agenda of this field, including most cutting edge research issues. The agenda of Internet Studies related to classical sociological issues are analyzed in more detail: inequality, online communities and social capital as well as topics related to the study of transformations in different spheres of society - politics, public health and medicine, education. Two main theoretical approaches are briefly described, within which the influence of the Internet on society is interpreted: the network society theory and critical theory of the Internet and society. We conclude that the present directions of Internet research have many intersections with each other, and the perspective of a more complete study of the mechanisms, that mediate social changes related to the Internet and connect online and offline sociality into a single space, opens at these intersections.
The social and community driven aspects of our digital lives continue to rapidly increase, resulting in transformative behaviors and, significantly, publishing and distributing huge amounts of fascinating data. The seventh meeting of the International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM-13) held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, promised to be a benchmark year for ICWSM. Thanks to the enthusiastic participation of our community, we received a record number of submissions, with a growth of 50 percent over the previous year. More than the quantity, however, the high quality of the submitted papers is the truest evidence that ICWSM is maturing in its role as a premier venue for social media research.

This research project attempts to investigate the peculiarities of reactions of Russian schools to changes related to the incorporation of mobile learning and social networks in education, which implied not by the federal government as previously, but brought by students themselves as main users of Internet and mobile devices. Currently, 97 percent of Russian adolescents have they own mobile devices (D.Koroleva, 2016). Despite the official Ministry of Education ban K-12 students still use their cellular phones or tablets in schools. Social network sites are most popular resource among adolescents; they use this service for communication, distribution of information and its consumption. The obtained data shows that the usage of mobile technology is the indistinguishable process for adolescents due to both face-to-face and online communication. Thus, the social situation for child’s development is changing. Nevertheless, penetration of the online communication in everyday lives of scho ol children is ignored by the compulsory education in Russia, and the educational potential of social networks is not considered. The study identified a new, third wave of education informatization, which is coming not from the state as previous ones, but provoked by students themselves as main users and owners of the mobile devices. We argue that this process of change have to be considered by educational stakeholders and policymakers. The research is based on Vygotsky's social constructivist theory (Vygotsky, 1978), and according to Creswell’s mixed methods research design (Creswell, 2005).
This book is the essential guide for understanding how state power and politics are contested and exercised on social media.

Chapters cover social media in the context of phenomena such as contemporary revolutions in Egypt and other countries, populism 2.0, anti-austerity protests, the fascist movement in Greece's crisis, Anonymous and police surveillance.
