Following the seminal work of Henry Jenkins and the reconsideration of fans as producers, fan studies have focused on the digital traces left by online contributors and on the creative practices of hardcore fans. However, the results of an ethnomethodological study of a daily digital comic strip (Les Autres Gens) show that many fans are so-called lurkers. A “lurker” is a term used to refer to anyone who regularly reads conversations on an online discussion space such as a forum, discussion list, comments area or on digital media and who does not visibly contribute to conversations. Yet such fans should not be considered as either passive or alienated. For these reasons Julien Falgas suggests that fan studies, taking up Jenkins’ concept of spreadability, be expanded to include analysis and exploration of the dynamic circulation of audiences between information, communication and contributive practices.
