Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka till vilken grad studenter som använder Facebook och som studerar vid Uppsala universitet uppfattar att vissa grupprocesser (kommunikation, samarbete och koordination) stöds av Facebook och hur det i sin tur påverkar gruppen och det arbete den utför. Undersökningen är baserad på en enkät som besvarats av studenter på Uppsala universitet som använder Facebook och kvantitativa data som samlades in har legat som grund för undersökningen. Resultatet av undersökningen är en utvärdering av hur de deltagande studenterna uppfattar att Facebook stödjer de olika grupprocesserna. Undersökningen visar att studenterna tycker att Facebook är ett bra hjälpmedel i grupparbeten och att kommunikationen stödjs till stor del. Men koordinationen och samarbetet stödjs inte till så stor del av Facebook, men studenterna uppfattar ändå det som ett bra hjälpmedel.

Abstract [en]

The purpose with this essay is to examine the degree to which students, who are using Facebook, at Uppsala University perceive that some group processes (communication, collaboration and coordination) is supported by Facebook and how this in return affects the group and the work performance. The study is based on a survey answered by students who are using Facebook at Uppsala universities and the quantitative data that was collected has been the basis for the study. The result of the study is an evaluation of how these students perceive that Facebook supports the various group processes. The study shows that the students think that Facebook is a good tool in group work and communication is supported to a great extent. But coordination and cooperation are not supported in large part by Facebook, but students still perceive it as a good tool.
