Abstract

The way in which criminologists understand, contextualise and theorise around the mediatised
world has raised some critical new questions. The purpose of this paper is to report on qualitative research
which looks at the ways in which some forms of social media are utilised by gang members. Gang research in
the main is predicated on the notion that gangs are deviant products of social disorganisation; however, there
is little written on the “specific” forms of expression used by those associated with gangs.
