Beyond connectivity: The impacts of social media in urban development in Puerto Ayora, Ecuador

This paper explores the effects of social media at a local level, in terms of the interaction between the people and their transforming cities, and between citizens and planning authorities. In attempting to unpack these interactions, this paper analyses how social media, as a tool for collective organisation, sharing and producing information, affects the power relationships around the building of cities. In the final chapter, the example of Puerto Ayora, the Galapagos Islands, the paper analyses some situations where the use of social media has supported social initiatives in achieving their goals. This study suggests that a timely analysis of what is happening, in the digital, as distinct from the physical, spaces where people discuss the city is needed to broaden urban theories and ensure more holistic analysis of what is actually happening.

Heathrow Airport commissioned this report from Frontier Economics (Europe) which looked at the impact of different options for airport expansion on competition and choice for passengers. As airport capacity gets congested, passengers are likely to suffer in a number of ways, including rising ticket prices (to keep demand down to the available capacity) and a restricted choice of direct routes. With Heathrow full, passengers are already experiencing these impacts. Moreover, with demand for air travel continually rising and Gatwick also likely to be full before 2030, these costs are set to grow significantly. Frontier’s report is based on empirical analysis of detailed route-level passenger data to model the extent to which a lack of capacity has driven up ticket prices at Heathrow.
