I Agree with digital as a generally decent option. Given that the book is about "new media" you may also use

"New Media Prosumption." This gets around some of the language problems and captures the multi-directional nature of content creation

Best,

i agree--digital is by far the best...Its actual meaning is of course narrower than the way the concept is deployed, but that is ok.
