Everybody is talking about the Internet. But don't we all move in filter bubbles and just read fake news? Are we going to let bots tell us what to think? Can data monopolies no longer be broken? And is the global South finally lost? No, no, no - and no. And yet "Internet myths", i.e. misconceptions about the impact and reality of the Internet and Internet-based communication, are very popular.
However, there is a great deal of Internet research expertise and solid empirical research in Germany and around the world that could clear up the myths. A book is intended to remedy this situation by providing fact-based, descriptive and practical information. It is edited by Dr. Matthias C. Kettemann and Dr. Stephan Dreyer and financed by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy.
