The information experience of new mothers in social media: A grounded theory study

Davis, Kate E. (2015) The information experience of new mothers in social media: A grounded theory study. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.

Abstract

This constructivist grounded theory study investigated the nature of new mothers' information experience in social media. The findings provide a holistic view of the phenomenon and the resultant substantive grounded theory describes new mothers' information experience in social media as a complex, multi-layered, and highly contextualised phenomenon. It encapsulates multiple individual experiences of information, and is broader and deeper than the individual experiences it is comprised of. The theory incorporates the characteristics, dimensions and categories of experience to provide a holistic view of new mothers' information experience in social media.
