Length: 1,200 words (± 10%)
In the review essay, use the knowledge you have learned from the readings, lectures, and discussions to answer the following two questions:
Why do scholars and the general public think that we are living in a platform society?
How does platform company accumulate its power?
The Review Essay offers the space for you to demonstrate your understanding of the recent rise of digital platforms, and the social, economic, and political consequences of a continued trend of “platformization” of the society. Take this assignment as an exercise for you to build a conceptual and analytical foundation for the final essay. You should utilize the concepts and theories covered in this course for the Review Essay.
Think about the following points while you try to answer the two questions above (you don’t have to cover all of them in the Review Essay):
Why some scholars say we are living in a platform society/capitalism? What distinguishes digital platform companies from, say, retailers or manufacturers?
What sets platform-mediated activities apart (e.g., rid-hailing service vs. taxi, or social media vs. broadcasting)?
How do digital platforms shift the power relations between companies, users, government/regulators, and other social and economic actors/complementors?
What mechanisms have been deployed by digital platform companies to achieve their dominant position on the market? Does digital platform company achieve its market position solely by its technology?
Which problems or challenges arise from the dominance of digital platforms in our life?
Are platform economies all the same across different geographies? Does national experience matter in the mechanism and development of digital platforms?
To which extent does geography inform our knowledge about platform theory? What is the political significance of platform theory that considers geographical/national differences?
