Dear colleagues,

We - Eelco Herder, Jürgen Ziegler and Markus Strohmaier - defined a 
research topic (or rather a special issue) on human-machine feedback 
loops in social media, to appear in  Frontiers in Artificial 
Intelligence AI for Human Learning and Behavior Change. We cordially 
invite you to submit an article to this research topic by 11 October.

More about this research topic:


- Abstract: earliest possible (optional)
- Manuscript: 11 October 2021

In this Research Topic, we aim to investigate feedback loops on how 
social media respond to their users and vice versa. A common criticism 
is that 'the algorithm' of a given social network determines which items 
users will see and react upon. We believe that a more human-centered 
approach to these issues acknowledges that the behavior of these 
algorithms is just as well shaped by the social (mediated) interactions 
between users and user-provided content and the way users react to them.

Examples of topics include but are not limited to the following:

* What triggers cause users to spontaneously comment, rate, share, or 
otherwise react to posts, videos, or other (commercial, recommended) 
* How do users respond to online behavior that they consider 
unacceptable - and does this make a difference if the other users are 
strangers, friends, or even close relatives?
* How do folk theories (possibly incorrect or incomplete mental models 
on how a system works) influence system usage and how can misconceptions 
be repaired?
* What is the effect of the introduction of new interface elements, for 
example, the possibility to react with various emojis instead of a 
simple like or thumbs-up?
* How can (personalized, intelligent) algorithms detect unexpected, 
undesirable responses (automatically or by means of user feedback or 

This is a great opportunity to have your research published in Frontiers 
in Artificial Intelligence, an interdisciplinary journal at the 
forefront of artificial intelligence research. Led by Professor Thomas 
Hartung, it seeks to understand the AI revolution and how it spills into 
all areas of life, from finance to health, agriculture to human response.

More about Research Topics:
Frontiers’ Research Topics are collections of peer-reviewed articles 
around an emerging or cutting-edge theme. As a contributing author, you 
will benefit from:

* high visibility and the chance to be included in a downloadable ebook
