Abstract: The purpose of this study was to gain insight into the motives that underlie the posting of pictures on the popular app Instagram. Based on in-depth interviews with sixteen Instagram users, we found that there are at least six different motives to post pictures on the app and these motivations differ between men and women as well as younger and older users. Furthermore, in contrast with the often-negative connotation the posting of pictures online has in academic and popular discussions, the results paint a more positive picture. Users reveal that they receive more than just a status validation from the posting of pictures, they indicate that they feel part of a community that supports them both online and in real life.

Abstract: What does the conceptual indebtedness to visual metaphors portend for the study of communication? And what can be learned about the metaphoricity of concepts, and their impact upon analytical discourse, from the use of images and visual tropes in communication studies? Focusing on the place of the visual within the theoretical discourse of political communication research, this paper examines two interrelated concepts - Lippmann’s “picturing” and the ubiquitous “framing” - attempting to shed light on their conceptual proclivities by giving an account of them in relation to the 'pictorial turn' in the humanities and social sciences.

Abstract: Background and Aims: Although infant-mother interactions have been studied in contexts, which are focusing on the third objects of mediating their interactions, researchers haven’t focused on the traits of the mediating objects. While mothers interact with infants, they actively interact with objects placed between them. The traits of the objects may influence on strategies that are selected from infant and mother for their interaction. In accordance with intermediating objects, infant may change the strategy to gain his/her maternal attention or change the strategy to request his/her mother to do something. These are similar to maternal behavior on interaction situation.
Reading picture book situation is an obvious triadic interaction situation in infancy. Most mothers tend to think that reading book is very important to their children’s cognition. Since picture books were made up various visual-auditory stimulations, they can be clearly classified to the traits than other materials. They can provoke different interactions between infant and mother according to unique traits of each book. This study aimed to investigate the effect of the mediating objects on infant-mother interactions through reading picture book situations.
Methods: The materials of the study are 5 picture books, which are made by different formats and styles of illustration and text, but treat equally on color concepts. Eighty nine reading book cases of infant (M=24 months, Range=20-28 months) and mothers were analyzed. Their verbal and nonverbal interaction strategies were videotaped and scored in the coding system of this study.
Results and Conclusion: The results revealed that infant and mother made an alteration on their communication strategies for format and illustration trait in each picture book. Maternal verbal strategies of efficient reading (F(4,84)=3.84, p<.01), explain (F(4,84)=5.68, p<.001) and feedback (F(4,84)=2.69, p<.05) are different according to the kinds of picture book. Infant verbal strategies of labeling (F(4,84)=2.55, p<.05) and imitation (F(4,84)=3.64, p<.01) are different too. Also maternal nonverbal strategies of describing gesture (F(4,84)=4.44, p<.01), pointing (F(4,84)=3.17, p<.05) and behavioral request (F(4,84)=2.30, p<.05), and infant nonverbal strategies of describing gesture (F(4,84)=4.43, p<.01) and imitative gesture (F(4,84)=6.41, p<.001)are significantly different according to the kinds of picture book. These finding suggest that context variable including format and trait of picture book could change interaction between infant and mother.
