Daniel Trottier's monograph "Social Media as Surveillance" (Ashgate, 2012) was awarded the 2013 Annual Book Prize by the Surveillance Studies Network.

According to the judges:

"'Social Media as Surveillance' stands as a challenge to many commonly-held assumptions about privacy in an age of social media, and that it is likely to appeal to a wide audience outside of surveillance studies.
The judges were also impressed by the author's success in eliciting valuable information from his interviewees, and the insights provided by his empirical data more generally. It is clearly a work that shed substantial light on a much talked about but under-researched topic."
