Answer all questions as thoroughly as possible:
1.
Is this a Qualitative (non-numbers-based) or a Quantitative (numbers-based)
study?
because they are getting their information from a survey. Actually this is a
quantitative study – quantitative studies use questionnaires, but the answers are
usually given numerical values and are used in statistical analyses. Also, there
are hypotheses stated for this study, and only quantitative studies have
hypotheses.
2.
3.
Briefly describe what the researcher(s) was trying to find out with this study.
The study looks into the relationship between social media and one’s social
capital; they look into how social media affects certain aspects of students’ lives.
3.
What are the major hypotheses or research questions of the study?
Intensity of Facebook use will be positively associated with individuals’ perceived
bridging social capital; intensity of Facebook use will be positively associated
with individuals’ perceived bonding social capital, these depending on the
person’s degree of self-esteem and their satisfaction with life. Actually there are
4 hypotheses in this study – you need to list them (copy and paste is okay)
4.
Who were the participants in the study? Briefly describe the demographic
characteristics (age, gender, location of study, number of participants involved).
286 students from Michigan State University, 34% male, 66% female, the
average age is 20.
5.
What instruments are used to collect and measure data (i.e. test results, surveys,
interviews, attendance records, etc.)?
They collected information about demographic variables, age, gender, local or
home residence, ethnicity and degree of internet use. Mention that the
survey/questionnaire the students used was online.
6.
What are the findings of the study? (note: here you will need more than a one
sentence explanation – this is the “meat” of your paper and you will need to
understand what was determined by the results of the research) Remember:
you will find information about the findings that you can understand in the
“Discussion” section of the study, thus it’s important that you give a good
summary of the study IN YOUR OWN WORDS – Not Copied and Pasted.
They found that when they take into consideration the general use of the internet, the
extent to which students used Facebook intensively supported their first hypothesis.
which was? And how was the hypothesis supported? After analyzing the independent
factors (listed in the study) they found that they accounted for about half of the variance
in bridging social capital. They see that white people are slightly more likely to have
bridging social capital but overall the satisfaction with life was strongly correlated with
the bridging social capital. In the end they found that the students having less intense
Facebook use also had lower satisfaction with MSU life, higher Facebook use showed
higher satisfaction with MSU. The same correlation for self-esteem, higher Facebook
use the higher self-esteem. I think that you will need to have an understanding of what is
meant by social capital (I’m not sure you really understand) so you can discuss this in
your paper. This discussion of the results really isn’t sufficient for your paper.
7.
What suggestions/recommendations are made by the researcher(s) in terms of
applying the findings of the study to society/culture?
What I got from this was just to make sure you are monitoring your social media
use and to make sure your life is not consumed by your virtual life. Technology is
now a major part of our society and we have to learn how to use it wisely.
8.
How does this study relate to your chosen topic for your research paper?
My research topic is analyzing online relationships; this study looks into the
significance of Facebook on a university’s campus which really helps give me
insight on my topic.
Okay –, I think it would be good for you to go back and re-read the discussion section of
this study (beginning on page 1161) to get a better understanding of the results of the
study. Social capital as understood by these researchers I the development of
relationships/partnerships/information/sense of belonging that develops in a person
when he/she is involved in networking –whether f-2-f or online. In other words, these
researchers believed that the more students developed associations online through
Facebook, the more they would be a part of a community and align themselves with
MSU life.

Marketing Research, (1547-7193). 76-84. doi: 10.1509/jmr.10.035
Answer all questions as thoroughly as possible:
1.
Is this a Qualitative (non-numbers-based) or a Quantitative (numbersbased) study?
·
This research study is quantitative because they create a numerical analysis
by using formulas to generate calculations for each emotion examined in the
content.
2.
Briefly describe what the researcher(s) was trying to find out with this
study.
·
The researchers were trying to determine what articles got shared the most
frequently, and the way in which an article’s valence & the specific emotions that the
video provokes has an impact over how frequently it is shared.
3.
What are the major hypotheses or research questions of the study?
·
The major research question was, how does valence please explain in your
paper the meaning of valence (briefly) and specific emotions provoked within New
York Times articles influence how it rates on the most emailed list.
4.
Who were the participants in the study? Briefly describe the demographic
characteristics (age, gender, location of study, number of participants involved).
·
The participants of the study were the 6956 articles that appeared on the front
page of New York Times between August 30 and November 30, 2008.
5.
What instruments are used to collect and measure data (i.e. test results,
surveys, interviews, attendance records, etc.)?
·
The data was collected using a web crawler that observed information every
15 minutes about articles on the homepage and the most emailed list.
6.
What are the findings of the study? (note: here you will need more than a
one sentence explanation – this is the “meat” of your paper and you will need to
understand what was determined by the results of the research)
The valence results show positive is a direct factor in how viral content is. The
study helps to indicate that content is more likely to become viral the more positive it
is. In addition, the article concluded that positive and negative articles are more viral
than those that do not provoke an emotion in general. To further detail their studies,
they observed that the positive/negative emotions could incite arousal, or
deactivation. Examples of arousal would be awe, anxiety, anger, etc. Examples of
deactivation would be sadness. The study found that the most emailed list of New
York Times articles had examples of arousal. The researcher probably believed the
most important elements of viral videos are positive, AROUSAL elements. The
arousal elements probably generate a stronger emotional response over the
deactivation examples, and people will be more apt to share a video if there is a
strong emotional response.
7.
What suggestions/recommendations are made by the researcher(s) in
terms of applying the findings of the study to society/culture?
·
They suggest applying the findings to the field of marketing. The researchers
think that marketing should be done in terms of incorporating these positive, arousal
characteristics that are linked to the success rate of viral content. If marketing
generates viral content, it will reach a vast audience and they will be able to brand
their product/service better.
8.
How does this study relate to your chosen topic for your research paper?
·
This study relates to my topic because it identifies the most successful
elements of viral content. It specifically emphasizes characteristics of arousal in viral
content. I want to further explain how arousal makes for successful viral content
because it initiates a strong emotional response for the viewer. A strong emotional
response from the viewer makes them want to share what they have just observed
with their fellow peers/connections. Then the more the content is shared, that is what
makes for a successful viral video.

Answer all questions as thoroughly as possible:
1.
Is this a Qualitative (non-numbers-based) or a Quantitative (numbers-based)
study?
This study is qualitative and quantitative because it uses a survey to retrieve its
data, then uses numbers and percentages to determine the amount of electronic
device use/multitasking.
2.
Briefly describe what the researcher(s) was trying to find out with this study.
The researchers were trying to find out which genders multitasked the most in
middle school students vs. other people because younger people may do it more
than older, more mature individuals. To add on the previous point, the researchers
were trying to figure out which electronic devices were used more by boys than
girls and vice versa. For example, just like how boys and girls dress differently,
they may have different spectrums in what electronic devices/media activities in
which they do on a regular basis.
3.
What are the major hypotheses or research questions of the study?
There are a total of 6 hypotheses in the study, put in 3 sets with 2 hypotheses
being 1 set, on certain “tiny” aspects of the study, this includes: Set One: “more
girls will own and use communication and music platforms compared to boys,
more boys will own and use gaming platforms compared to girls.” Set Two:
“greater ownership and use of any technology platform will increase the
likelihood of overall multitasking, greater ownership and use of specific platform
will increase the likelihood of the related type of media-multitasking, overall,
more girls will multitask than boys” Set Three: “(a) compared to boys, girls are
more likely to multitask during communication and music activities, (b) explained
by their greater ownership and use of communication- and music-related
platforms, (a) compared to girls, boys are more likely to multitask during gaming,
(b) explained by their greater ownership and use of gaming-related platforms”
(Cotton et al., 2014). To put these hypotheses in simpler terms, in set one, the
researchers considered the ownership of different platforms such as desktop
computers and cell phones. In set two, they considered ownership of the devices
and time spent using these platforms. In set three, the researchers proposed that
gender differences in multitasking with communication, music, and gaming media
could be explained by considering gender differences in platform ownership and
use.
4.
Who were the participants in the study? Briefly describe the demographic
characteristics (age, gender, location of study, number of participants involved).
The participants were 895 students evenly split boys and girls, the students were
evenly split between 4th, 5th, and 6th grades with the average age of 12.5 years old,
53.6% were White and 14.9% were other ethnic backgrounds, and 58% of
students had a high socioeconomic status.
5.
What instruments are used to collect and measure data (i.e. test results, surveys,
interviews, attendance records, etc.)?
A cross-sectional survey was used to measure the large independent variables
which included gender, student’s ownership of electronic devices, and time spent
using the devices.
6.
What are the findings of the study? (note: here you will need more than a one
sentence explanation – this is the “meat” of your paper and you will need to
understand what was determined by the results of the research) Remember:
you will find information about the findings that you can understand in the
“Discussion” section of the study, thus it’s important that you give a good
summary of the study IN YOUR OWN WORDS – Not Copied and Pasted.
The first set of hypotheses in the experiment was supported, showing that boys
owned more video games instead of girls who owned more MP3 and cell phones.
The second set of hypotheses was supported, showing that owning and using
most electronics increased multitasking except for gaming. It being one of the
most shocking results, it was found that nothing increased the chance of
multitasking while gaming.I suppose that those who are gaming find that they
must keep their attention on the game – distractions can make them lose. The final
set of hypotheses was half supported and half not, the researchers found gender
differences in multitasking while doing certain activities such as chatting,
emailing, listening to music, etc. Everything else couldn’t fully be accounted for
because the questions weren’t answered accurately on the survey. Overall, certain
types of technology are more prevalent to multitasking than others. For example,
gaming requires a large amount of attention and people playing become immersed
in the game, specifically online multiplayer games. This is because people are
playing against others around the world in real time and trying to remain alive or
win their game. Due to this, aside from in-game chatting people can’t do
homework or write an email when participating in this activity. The last main
finding is that more girls report multitasking than boys and this is most likely due
to the activities they may participate in more such as listening to music, chatting
with friends, etc.
7.
What suggestions/recommendations are made by the researcher(s) in terms of
applying the findings of the study to society/culture?
The findings in this study were all determined through a survey filled out by the
subjects, may not be most accurate information. Future research using more
quantitative and qualitative data could help show a better relationship between
types and functions of multitasking between genders. Another suggestion would
be to have subjects constantly switch between various activities and also find its
effects on the brain/memory retention.
8.
How does this study relate to your chosen topic for your research paper?
Other studies that I found were mainly of high school/college students and this
study shows that in today’s society multitasking/electronic device use is started at
younger ages than a few years ago. Great point!
