Bjorn and I would like to thank to Zizi Papacharissi for supporting our special issue, Stacy Blasiola for all the behind the scenes wrangling to get all the papers actually published, everyone who took part as a peer reviewer, ensuring these papers were the best they could possibly be, and thanks as well to all our fabulous contributors. This is an issue which really highlights an important emerging area looking at how very young people are being portrayed, surveyed, datafied and performed online!
