Good System Postdoc Interest Group
Social Noise and the Technological Agency of Facebook
In this presentation, Tara Zimmerman will discuss her qualitative research on social media users’ information behavior which led her to coin the term “social noise.” She will also introduce her next project which focuses on the technological affordances of Facebook and how those are perceived by users.
Tara Zimmerman is a CI2020 Postdoctoral Research Fellow funded through the National Science Foundation and working at the UT Austin iSchool with Ken Fleischmann. She completed her PhD in 2020 at the University of North Texas and is continuing to develop the Social Noise framework in the contexts of misinformation and COVID-19, as well as working on projects through Good Systems.
