English term or phrase: omnopticon
Surveillance is not just about being watched by businesses and governments. It also includes mutual surveillance. Social media give everyone a stage to perform on, and a pair of binoculars so that we can all watch. It becomes an Internet “omnopticon,” with people watching one another. We might think that our performances would interest only friends and family, but when they go online, they can reach far further.

Come lo rendereste?

Note to reference poster
Asker: speravo in un pindarico neologismo ;) di solito qui traduciamo tutto, magari con una perifrasi, lasciando tra partentesi, nel caso, il termine inglese. In questo caso forse il termine è intuibile, vediamo che dicono i curatori. A prestissimo! :)
