Photos on Facebook : 24 youths about social photo communication on Facebook (English)
Abstract [sv]

Vi har genom intervjuer i fokusgrupper undersökt hur gymnasiestuderande 18-åriga ungdomar i Sundsvall reflekterar över bilder och bildpublicering på det sociala mediet Facebook. Tre fokusgrupper bestående av kvinnor, tre fokusgrupper bestående av män har resonerat kring frågor som berör fyra teman: medialisering, integritet, självbild och etik. Totalt ingick 24 ungdomar i undersökningen.

Studien besvarar frågor kring varför ungdomar publicerar bilder på Facebook och vilka problem och konsekvenser denna bildpublicering kan resultera i, samt om det finns några skillnader mellan män och kvinnor i deras svar.

Studiens ungdomar lever ett medierat liv. De återberättar händelser ur verkliga livet på Facebook med hjälp av bilder. Studiens ungdomar använder sig även av bilder för att skapa sina digitala jag, och ser dessa bilder som en viktig del av hur de uppfattas av andra. Tjejerna publicerar fler bilder på sig själva, än vad killarna gör, och är mer medvetna om hur de framställs på bilderna. Ungdomarna tänker på hur en okänd publik kan ta del av den information som finns om dem digitalt, och värnar därför om sin integritet på Facebook, samt vill kontrollera de bilder som de förekommer på. Ungdomarna visar medvetenhet över etisk problematik som kan uppstå, men ser inte detta som något problem då de ofta känner de som har publicerat bilderna, och menar att de själva aldrig skulle publicera oetiska bilder på Facebook eftersom de endast laddar upp bilder på sina vänner.

Abstract [en]

By focus group interviews, we have examined how 18 year old high school students in Sundsvall, Sweden, reflect over photos and photo publishing on the online social network Facebook. Three focus groups consisting of women and three focus groups consisting of men have talked about questions concerning four different themes: medialization, integrity, self presentation and ethics. A total of 24 youths participated in the survey.

This survey answers questions about why youths are publishing photos on Facebook, and in what kind of problems and consequences this publishing can result. This survey will also look into possible differences between men and women regarding their answer in these questions.

The youths of this survey lives a mediated life. With the use of photographs, they retell events from real life on Facebook. The youths also use photographs to create their digital self, and these images are seen as an important way of how they are perceived by others. The girls in the focus groups publish more photos of themselves than the boys, and are more conscious of how they appear on these photos. The youths do take in mind how an unknown public can take part of the information that is digitally gathered about them, and therefore defend their integrity on Facebook since they want to control the existence of the photos they are occurring on. The youths shows an understanding about the problems that can occur from an ethical point of view, but does not see this as a problem since they often knows the publisher of these photos, and expresses that since they only upload photos of their friends, they never would publish unethical photos on Facebook themselves.
