This book explores the media and conflict relationship in the age ofsocial media through the lens of China. Inspired by the concepts of medialization of conflict and actor-network theory, this book centers on four main actors in wars and conflicts: social media platform,mainstream news organizations, online users and social media content. These four human and non-human actors associate, interact and negotiate with each other in the social media network. The central argument is that social media is playing an enabling role in contemporary wars and conflicts. Both professional media outlets and web users employ the functionalities of social media platforms to set, counter-set or expandthe online public agenda. Social media platform embodies a web oftechnological and human complexities with different actors, factors,interests, and power relations. These four actors and the macrosocial-political context are influential in the medialization ofconflict in the social media era.
