Internet Inquiry by Nancy K. Baym
Book Description"Internet Inquiry" takes readers into the minds of top internet researchers as they discuss how they have worked through critical challenges as they research online social environments. Rather than providing single 'how to' answers, this book presents distinctive and divergent viewpoints on how to think about and conduct qualitative internet studies. The various chapters illustrate that good research choices are not random but are deliberate, studied, and internally consistent.
