Always-on is the phenomenon that we are connected to the network (information and people) everywhere and all the time (boyd, 2012, pp. 71-72). 
Convergence is “the flow of content across multiple media platforms, the cooperation between multiple media industries, and the migratory behavio[u]r of media audiences who will go almost anywhere in search of the kinds of entertainment experiences they want” (Jenkins, 2006, p. 2). 
Dataveillance is the “systematic use of personal data systems in the investigation or monitoring of the actions or communications” Clarke (1998, p. 499). 
Disconnectivity is a conscious disavowal or non-consumption to remove or not use media platforms (Portwood-Stacer, 2013, p.1042).
Remediation is the repurposing of media or the “representation of one medium in another” (Bolter & Grusin, 2000, p. 45). 
Transmedia (storytelling) is “a process where integral elements of a fiction get dispersed systematically across multiple delivery channels for the purpose of creating a unified and coordinated entertainment experience. Ideally, each medium makes it[s] own unique contribution to the unfolding of the story” (Jenkins, 2011, n.p.)
