Abstract

As computation has come to be integrated into a broad range of technologies and tasks, so too has the world been made more amenable to computation. With new sensors, applications, and analytic techniques, human feelings are increasingly rendered in machine-readable formats. This dissertation focuses on the most common, everyday example—the Facebook Like button—in order to understand the processes through which affect becomes information and the social, political, and ethical dynamics involved.
