The conclusion is that we cannot divide this behavior into being either online or offline anymore. Social media is ubiquitous and activities takes place at the same time, all the time, where people orient themselves towards these platforms as part of everyday life without necessarily logging in and updating them. This is why we need to reconsider how we talk about “social media use” and reflect upon what we really mean when we talk about "using" social media.

“The story of #MeToo as a ‘witch hunt’ and an ‘illegal people's court’, which is almost missing in Swedish reporting, permeates Danish coverage. At the same time, we see in Swedish media a story about #MeToo as a popular movement and a struggle against power structures.

One of the obstacles that emerged was that companies don’t have a plan for replacing individuals on leave, instead relying on a culture of loyalty whereby their colleagues cover for the dads who are at home. This causes men to take shorter leave in order not to create problems for their colleagues.

Political power needs media attention in a complex society with an abundance of information. Media, on the other hand, need information and credible sources inside the political establishment in order to produce news and information.

There is no underlying theme, however there is a material tactility that follows the works, a discovery irradiating from the medium of photography, bouncing from a mirror and changing form. The works span from photographs on paper, use of graphic material and 3D renders to fabric, threads, wood, mirrors and so on. This awareness of the material is the core of the show.
Tina Umer, one of the exhibiting artists
Insofar as these traits can be classified as stereotypically feminine, our interpretation of the data is that as countries become more progressive men and women gravitate towards their traditional gender norms. But, we really don’t know why it is like this, and sadly our data does not let us tease out the causal explanations.

Freedom of expression is constantly being disputed and it’s still not obvious. With the digitalization that cuts across every part of our society and with Internet and all its platforms new dimensions and dilemmas are created, not leased from a freedom of expression and democracy perspective.

When the commercially financed news media can no longer rely on advertising as a source of income, there will be consequences for the entire business model and, in extension, for the entire production of journalism in the Nordic region.

The material enticed me to create something big, an architectural furniture, says Nihan Aycan. I explored different ways of creating and erasing space and (un)spaced plays with the sense of privacy through its abstract and graphic forms.
