Troublebook : A study on the change of community (English)
Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim of this study is to understand why people have changed their preferred community over time. What are the main factors when changing to a new one?

Method/material: The method has consisted of personal interviews with six different people in the ages between 20-22 and of different gender. The main material that has been used in this essay is the theory of Uses and Gratifications as explained by Denis McQuail, the theory of Convergence culture by Henry Jenkins and the theory about Communites of Practice by Etienne Wenger.

Main results: This study shows a heavy affection that the use of communities often centers round the people around the community, rather than the functions that the communities themselves provides. Having people that you know on the community you choose is a vital part for people or at least having the support of other people and changing to another community at the same time. Although, some of the respondents answered that they felt that some functions had been a thing they’ve thought of sometimes, and some chose communities in earlier days regarding the attitude of a specific community.
