Decorum and Discomfort in Digital Media Use

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

By using Erving Goffman's thinking, in terms of self-presentation and decorum, we analyse dimensions of how people view different aspects of behaviour in relation to digital media, with a focus on mobile phone use and social media. The study builds on a representative sample of 3400 respondents who answered a postal survey in Sweden 2014. Questions were asked about appropriateness to talk loud in the cell-phone in public, surfing on the mobile-phone while eating a romantic dinner, improve images on one-self on the internet etc. By using a large representative sample, we are able to capture different dimensions about to what extent people feel discomfort when confronted with breaks in what is expected and what one has agreed upon in terms of the consensus-built “definitions of a situation”. It also allows us to in a more general way draw conclusions about decorum and digital media use in different generations and populations built on socio-economic and lifestyle-oriented factors.
