Research: My recent project explores people’s participatory behaviors on Internet video sites—how people use interactive features on these sites and how to define and evaluate the “interactive audience.” It compares the regular users and non/casual users of interactive functions in terms of demographics, media consumption habits, technology/web experiences, and technology characteristics, and developed new criteria for evaluating online audiences.
