Digitalization and Society

Edited By Bünyamin Ayhan

This book presents a collection of papers by researchers from several different institutions on a wide range of digital issues.

Digitalization describes the phenomenon of how knowledge is processed and the processed knowledge provides social transformations beyond digitization, interaction, annihilation of time and space, the phenomenon of usage in multimedia. Transformed is not only the society but also its mentality. Digitalization reveals a sui generis digimodern process by processing modern structures with the help of compulsory tools. This process is a reconstruction of social structures and institutions on the basis of the digitalization perspective. Each social institution adapts this process and provides a contribution to the digitalization of society.

The photograph was the most significant, in terms of cultural and social weight, of the ‘new area of serially produced objects’ characterized by modernity (Gere, 2008: 36–37). This modernity also covers a part of technology attached to digital photography and the new digital concepts in social life. The camera, as an eye, free from limitations of time and space, also has the idea that the images are free from depending on time that has developed (Berger, 2010: 17–18). Digital photography also hugely promotes this concept because the new technologies afford the digital photography cycle in the world. New media changed the idea of time and space and created...
