New technologies, social networks and media: Spanish Revolution

In fact, these were important to the citizens’ mobilizations which filled Spanish streets and squares for several months in 2011 and 2012. Meanwhile, traditional mass media hardly noticed the citizen mobilization in the first days and, specifically, the main Spanish newspapers were left behind when they had to identify and analyze this social movement, which marks the first year of its beginning. In the first phase the research of the movement called 15M, takes a close look to the traditional media’s discourses in relation to citizens’ movements.
