This article reviews essays by Tarleton Gillespie, Chris Kelty, Greg Downey, and Steven Jackson. It argues that their work reveals that the field of media studies has moved from the analysis of mass-media representations to the analysis of algorithms, networks, and interlinked machines as the core sites of media's social power. It celebrates this turn, even as it reminds the reader that mass media still exist and that digital networks render mass representations all the more ubiquitous.

Keywords:   algorithms, media studies, networks, representation
