Faster Than Fact: Consuming in Post-Truth Society

Technocapitalism, a potent combination of information technology and capitalism, is the fundamental industrial force of our time. Technocapitalism affects consumers’ communication power, consumer culture’s acceleration, speed, de-temporalization and counter-narratives. This paper uses social assemblage dynamics to explain how technocapitalism produces some of the most vivid digital manifestations of post-truth society.
