"It took me about half an hour, but I did it!": Media circuits and affinity spaces around how-to videos on YouTube
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Sociology.
2012 (English)In: European Journal of Communication, ISSN 0267-3231, E-ISSN 1460-3705, Vol. 27, no 2, 152-170 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Combining sentiment analysis and discursive network analysis, this article looks to answer which sentiments characterize YouTube comments discourse, with a specific focus on how- to videos. What are the differences between comments to various types of videos, and which discursive contexts seem to promote positive sentiment and a participatory climate? Furthermore, the aim is to map out a variety of existing user strategies in terms of their degree of participation. What various modes of taking part and/or giving support are made discursively possible, and what degrees of detachment or engagement are expressed through these identified strategies?
