Review of Facebook Democracy. The Architecture of Disclosure and the Threat to Public Life by J.Marichal

  Jose Marichal’s investigation into Facebook, as a setting for democracy and potential influence on the public sphere, identifies something special about Facebook that both makes it popular and unique, even among social networking sites. This enables him to focus on the use and potential repercussions of Face- book specifically, freshening familiar discourse about the relationship between Internet use and demo- cratic activity.
