Sorry for not updating the blog! We haven’t fallen asleep, left the country or given up! We have simply been busy interviewing a bunch of people for our thesis. And what a marvelous bunch! The interviews revolve around their use of social media, and we are so blown away from all the creative and diverse stuff people are up to. If you thought that everybody is just busy taking pictures of their breakfast on Instagram or telling the world that they love Obama on Facebook, then guess again.
We have talked to the guy who writes guides to Star Trek computer games, just to help others out (and he gets hundreds of thousands hits!), the girl who has a blog with three other friends where they laugh at all the stupid stuff they find online, the guy who rallied a bunch of computer game enthusiasts together so they could help fund the making of a new game done by their 1990’s idols. There’s the girl who uploaded a stop motion movie to youTube just for the fun of it, and the boy who did random video posts on youTube about his teenage life, and then of course there are the facebook fans.
Now we’re listening to all the interviews once again, and hopefully we’ll be able to make something cleaver out of it. Stay tuned – we’re still here!
