Abstract [en]

This is an article concerning the development of methods for studying user-generated content (UGC) in digital contexts. Method development can advantageously mean applying analytical reference points: a form of perspective making and navigation with a common understanding of where different disciplines can contribute. Cultural studies on ‘pleasure’ raises the understanding connected to how UGC creates meaning for the people who use and create the material, for the content which has different meanings and for the view that politics is broader than news. Design research on ‘personas’ recalls how images of users are built into the development of services as well as in research. Informatics (computer science) ‘data mining’ deepens understanding of the importance of the digital as research material (data) and the skills that are required to analyse the data. These three analytical points of reference work in interaction with discussions related to tools about precisely how a study may be designed.
