This paper considers what intersectionality brings to digital sociology. Drawing on my research of online and for-profit education, I argue that black cyberfeminist theory can refine digital sociology’s understanding of identities, institutions and political economies in the data age. Additionally, classification situations offers a refinement of black cyberfeminism themes to examine how one mechanism, algorithmic stratification, allocates access to and returns from digitally mediated interactions.
