This paper begins with a young British woman – Sophie - and her interpretation of thecustomized advertising and news she encounters on the social networking and search platforms she accessesvia her mobile phone. The paper adopts Sophie as a provocation for identifying and thinking through arange of issues that arise from these new contextual landscapes. To unpack Sophie’s perceptions andexperiences, the paper turns to a framing discussion of the impact and reach of data in contemporary cultureand the discourses that have grown up around it. The paper then turns to the challenges posed by this neweconomic and cultural landscape for the ways in which we approach identity, text and being an effectiveliterate citizen-worker.
