New article from the researchers from Project Information Literacy.


  • So have Facebook and Google become the bibles for college students? 
  • Do young people rely on social media and search engines for all of the answers needed in their daily lives? 
In a new research paper from PIL, we found students use online information for decisions in their personal lives, but rely almost as much on family and friends nearly as much. 

The everyday life research study includes results of a new statistical analysis about what we call "ubiquitous search engine usage"--when search engines are most likely to be used--and not used--during students' everyday life information-seeking activities. 

 

Read "How College Students Use the Web to Conduct Everyday Life Research" in this month's issue of First Monday, an international journal about Internet research.
