Non-extremist coordinated activism of young people on social networks (case study of Danuše Nerudová`s volunteers)
Sandtnerová, Michaela ; Šlerka, Josef (advisor) ; Sedláček, Jakub (referee)
This thesis focuses on the non-extremist coordinated activism of young people on social networks using the example of Danuše Nerudová's volunteers. In the first part, it defines online activism and its forms and hybrid activism as a widely used type of activism. It then describes young people and their relationship to activism and explains the focus of the work on this age group. Last but not least, it also looks at coordinated behaviour, both authentic and inauthentic. As part of the qualitative research, the thesis focuses on Danuše Nerudová's volunteers, with whom in-depth semi-structured interviews were conducted to find out what activities the volunteers were doing, how they felt about it and whether they were coordinated voluntarily or vice versa. Data analysis revealed that volunteers performed all social media activities completely voluntarily and under their own name and social media profile. At the same time, the coordination by Danuše's team was carried out in a non-extremist manner. The work helped in the initial understanding of the phenomenon of non-extremist coordinated activism in the Czech Republic in the context of political campaigns and can serve as a basis for further research on this phenomenon.

Exploring YouTuber Popularity: A Quantitative Analysis of Communication Styles among Black Beauty YouTubers with Varying Follower Counts
Wang, Qiufei ; Hájek, Martin (advisor) ; Sedláček, Jakub (referee)
This research aims to investigate whether there are differences in the communication styles among black beauty vloggers with different popularity. Specifically, the study intends to examine the possible differences using the first five elements of Dell Hymes's SPEAKING model, including setting and scene, participants, ends, act sequence and key. The findings suggest that there are no notable distinctions between black beauty vloggers in terms of the setting and scene, the number of participants in the vlogs, and their sequence of intro- discussion-outro. But unfortunately, the differences in the usage frequency of black-related terms, the presence of black-related purposes, and the overall tone are still inconclusive as the results from the Advanced and Beginner groups are contradictory. As no conclusive results were found to support the existence of differences in these three aspects among black beauty vloggers with varying follower counts, the study argues that vloggers with varying audience sizes have mostly the same communication styles.

Sen, Shivam ; Hájek, Martin (advisor) ; Sedláček, Jakub (referee)
Digital Discourse Analysis of Posthumanism in Open Access Academia Abstract In light of Human actions leading to an earth wide ecological breakdown it is importance to reflect upon the construction of the notion of 'Human' and how people's ideas of 'their being' is evolving and changing. At the same time, there has been a recent emergence of the term 'Posthuman' in academic literature. In a very general form, the term is implying something that is after 'human'. However, due to its newness it is yet ambiguous. Thus, this paper conducts a digital discourse analysis to identify the different senses of the term as used in open access academia, investigates the other important objects in the discursive sphere and describe the power configuration in the discursive sphere. Findings suggests three major senses of the term, (1) 'Posthuman processes'. (2) 'Posthuman beings' and (3) 'Posthuman perspectives'. Salience of 'novel socio- technical processes', 'human enhancement technologies' and 'new perspectives of beings' is found in the discursive sphere. Further, influential or powerful authors and ideas in the sphere are also identified.

This thesis provides a novel view of celebrity fandom through the lens of big social data, while at the same time exploring the opportunities and challenges of using digital traces from social media for sociological research. The first chapter provides a sociological framing of celebrity, a short, joint history of celebrity and the media, and a discussion of the revolutionary role that social media and its platforms played in celebrity culture. Finally, it attempts to bridge theories related to celebrity's role in society with research on "lifestyle politics", "polarization", "taste cultures" and "lifestyle enclaves". The second chapter serves as an introduction into big social data and digital trace data. First as a socio-technological phenomenon, then as a research tool. It covers its historical and current availability and discusses its epistemological and practical opportunities, limits and dangers. Finally, it introduces Facebook pagelikes as a valuable source of information on lifestyle politics. Chapter three is an exploration of Facebook digital traces of 90k celebrity followers. It asks whether celebrity preferences are related to differences in various aspects of life, including politics, leisure or cultural consumption. Methodologically, it covers combining data from APIs with web scraping and...

Limits of social media monitoring in humaniterian crises
Böhm, Jan ; Šlerka, Josef (advisor) ; Sedláček, Jakub (referee)
Limits of social media monitoring in humanitarian crises This paper explores the use of social network data in humanitarian crises. I introduce three theoretical pillars - the techno-optimist concept of digital humanitarians, which describes how social network data improves the ability of humanitarian organizations to locate people in need of assistance. The second theoretical pillar is an analysis of the use of Facebook and Twitter in the context of the so-called Arab Spring, where I show that each network has specificities that need to be taken into account. I then present the concept of techno- colonialism to show how much of a problem it can be when the use of technology is approached without critical reflection. The theoretical introduction is followed by literature review and my own research. The aim of the literature review is to determine whether the limitations and potential risks of using social network data are perceived by current research. The review shows four main directions that the research addresses - the processing of so- called big crisis data, the analysis of specific tools, the possibilities of crisis management using big data, and critical reflection on the limits of social media monitoring. The literature review concludes by stating that critical reflection on the topic is not...

Kološová, Štěpánka ; Šlerka, Josef (advisor) ; Sedláček, Jakub (referee)
The thesis Conversation Design: Principles of Voicebot Design for Natural Communication with People addresses the question of how robots can naturally interact with humans and aims to create a model of conversational design rules. This will be developed based on insights from the literature and will also be supported by data from real conversations between humans and voicebots. The methodology of this thesis is qualitative analysis. In the theoretical part of the thesis I discuss how communication between people works. I describe how conversation can be viewed and how conversation analysis approaches it. In the next part I describe how voice assistants work and focus on how they can talk to people. The second part of the thesis is a literature search. Here I explore the approaches and perspectives of authors who are experts in conversation design, UX design, voice technology, linguistics, sociology, psychology and other fields. I summarize the authors' findings into nine competencies and skills that a virtual assistant should have. In the analytical section, I analyze three virtual assistant scenarios and the calls in which people interacted with them. I look at these scenarios from the perspective of those nine skills and analyze them using a set of questions. In the results of the analysis, I...
