Psychlogy Methods Hour: #Parenting Projects: Using Twitter to Understand Mothering and Fathering
Joyce Lee, Garrett Pace, Cheryl Hershey, Tawfiq Ammari, and Alex Lu
This presentation will mainly introduce a few different methodologies to study parenting using Twitter data. The presenters will provide some background information on the prevalence of parents' use of Twitter and then provide rationale for studying fathering and mothering, especially amongst stay-at-home fathers and mothers, using Twitter data. Specifically, the presenters will introduce a few studies their group has conducted to better understand topics and content stay-at-home parents discuss. The presentation will culminate in discussing a number of challenges and opportunities that arise when using Twitter to engage in parenting research. The presenters hope to generate and engage in subsequent discussions on these methodological and ethical issues.
