Commenting news on Facebook : A study about how deliberative the comments are on news sites Facebook pages (English)
The purpose of this study was to examine in which extent the comments about news in
the comment fields, on Swedish news sites Facebook pages were deliberative.
To fulfill this purpose we used a quantitative content analysis as a method to interpret
the data that we collected about 2203 reader comments from three news sites Facebook
pages. Jürgen Habermas theory about deliberative democracy together with theories
about public space and Web 2.0 were the theories we based our study on. To determine
that a comment was deliberative it had to contain an argument and be written with
tolerance and respect. Our result showed that most comments lacked either one or both
of these criteria’s and therefore weren’t deliberative. This study helps to show in which
extent the comments about news on Facebook are deliberative.
