Question on fieldwork. (10.11)

octubre 11, 2011

Are online communities considered a field in which to do fieldwork? How can the case for them to be considered as such be either strengthen or rejected? Furthermore, don’t they offer the optimal potential for complete observation (along with complete anonymity) to be conducted?

    We discussed this in class. Online communities are of interest to some researchers (such as yourself). I don’t know that we have to justify their use excessively, just talk about the advantages and disadvantages involved in using them. I’m not sure what you mean by “complete observation”…
