Q & A and discussion about Chapters 2 and 3.
The first section of Cases in Online Interview Research contains 2 cases and critiques of studies conducted using data collected with interviews in social media sites. In the first, "Blog Like an Egyptian," Sally Bishai used interviews as well as questionairres and blog post analysis for her study. In the second chapter, "Stranger in a Strange Land," Allison Deegan used interviews conducted with Facebook chat and email.(You met Allison Deegan in the webinar.)
- What questions, comments or thoughts do you have about these very different cases-- or the commentary on them included in the book?
- After reading these cases and commentaries, what thoughts do you have about data collection using social media?
Janet asks about data collecton using social media. We had a SCoPE seminar in 2008 on Social Media - Benefits for Researchers faciliated by Igne De Waard. Archives are always handy to see how responses to questions have changed over the years!
the links to the chapters dont appear to work for me.
Bronwyn, it might have been a "bit.ly" problem.
