Blog Entry Mobilizing Online Consensus: Net Neutrality and the India Subreddit
by Sujeet George published Sep 27, 2016 last modified Sep 27, 2016 04:52 AM — filed under: , , , ,
This essay by Sujeet George is part of the 'Studying Internet in India' series. The author offers a preliminary gesture towards understanding reddit’s usage and breadth in the Indian context. Through an analysis of the “India” subreddit and examining the manner and context in which information and ideas are shared, proposed, and debunked, the paper aspires to formulate a methodology for interrogating sites like reddit that offer the possibilities of social mediation, even as users maintain a limited amount of privacy. At the same time, to what extent can such news aggregator sites direct the ways in which opinions and news flows change course as a true marker of information generation responding to user inputs.

Companies like Flipkart, which earlier supported these products, have stepped back and are throwing their weight behind net neutrality.
