The following article discusses algorithmic personalization processes in digital media based on their actual practical operation mode. In particular, a theoretical-conceptual framework is developed, which understands algorithmic personalization as a mutual communication process between algorithm and user. Based on an interview study with programmers, users and journalists, the article then examines empirically the general dimensions which shape algorithm-user communication. The article ends with a number of concluding remarks in support of the participatory use of algorithmically personalized media and how these might look like.
