All the Feels
We are researchers from a range of disciplines gathered to employ different methodological approaches to explore how young people make sense of their social media use. We’re studying data gathered from 2012-2017 from youth who conducted auto-ethnographies of their own lived experience of social media. These youth have generated unique insights about their own social media experiences. Their rich and nuanced accounts offer more depth than what is typically collected through traditional qualitative methods such as interviews, surveys or media-trace content analyses. Our research goal is to explore their multimedia narrative accounts to highlight some of the ways youth define the internet, express how they feel, and live their lives in a digitally-saturated era.
