"any1 wanna chat?" - en kvalitativ studie om kontaktskapande i en chat
2004 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

This essay describes making contact in chatrooms. We wanted to study chatting in order to determine the different effects of a various range of nicknames and initial inputs. The purpose of the research is to contstruct a theory on how users make their contact in an open chatroom. Conducting our research, we observed a chosen chat for twelve hours in one week. During the observation we defined categories of chatusers and tendencies regarding usernames and initial inputs as well as the eventual response that were given. After the observation, we tested these tendencies in the same chatroom ourselves in participatory research. During the observation, we defined a number of tendencies that we consider affect the chances of making contact with fellow chatusers. These were tested in a participatory research. We managed to make contact with other chatusers in using outspoken debut, virtual emotional expressions, virtual actions and initiative. From our data and analysis we have reached the conclusion that as a chatuser one may use an outspoken debut, virtual emotional expressions, virtual actions and adaption of the chatroom´s discourse in ones attempts of making contact.
