Mobile News Information Behavior: An Exploratory Diary Study

Research

Over the summer of 2016, Professors Tang and Oh, together with their research assistant Alison Fisher, conducted data collection of an online diary research on mobile news behavior of undergraduate and graduate students in the US. Following the completion of their diary entries, a number of participants were involved in the follow up interviews. In Fall 2016, they continued a second wave of data collection. Currently the diary session is still ongoing.

Professors Tang and Oh have written a research paper reporting the preliminary results of the pre-diary survey responses from 50 participants in the summer.
