Visualizing personal network data. Examples from a study on EDs websites

  1. 1. Visualizing personal network data Examples from a study on EDs websites Antonio Casilli Telecom ParisTech, Paris Paola Tubaro University of Greenwich, London
  2. 2. Pro-ana? • Recurrent moral panic around websites on eating disorders, but effects on socialisation and health unclear • The ANAMIA project: http://www.anamia.fr/en/ • Our approach: a personal networks perspective • Map structure of relationships, investigate linkages with behaviours • Reaching out to this population and comparing their online and offline networks
  3. 3. Mixed methods, mixed data… • Web data, quantitative survey, qualitative interviews • 3 personal network datasets per respondent (face-to-face, online, support) • Multiple methods employed in the analysis – SNA, regression, agent-based computer simulation, textual analysis • Dataviz as more general support
  4. 4. Defining datavisualization • “The desire to take what normally falls outside of the scale of human senses and to make visible and manageable” [Manovich 2002] • Common tropes emerge: maps, natural metaphors (trees…), timelines, graphs… • “Sensory expression -- most often visual, sometimes sonic or tactile -- is the only means to perceive many contemporary data sets” [Diamond 2010]  Grant access to information in an aesthetically informed, sensorly appealing manner
  5. 5. Simple vulgarization tool? «Pourquoi la censure et le filtrage ne marchent pas?», Le Monde, 16 Nov. 2012 http://internetactu.blog.lemonde.fr/2012/11/16/pourquoi-la-censure-et-le-filtrage-ne-marchent-pa
  6. 6. Balance diverging exigencies • Scientific accuracy • Aesthetics • Accessibility • Cognitive effectiveness  Engage with social contexts of consumption of these images
  7. 7. The role of end-users • The page-based paradigm of the web has been interrupted by database incursions[Liu, 2004]. • Personal, everyday experience of data immersion and navigation shape individual “data-subjectivity” [Manovich 2002]
  8. 8. 1st tool: Visualization for data collection ANAMIA EGOCENTER (2010-11) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAlSaDdAaC0
  9. 9. 1st tool: Visualization for data collection Face-to-face egocentered networks
  10. 10. 1st tool: Visualization for data collection Online egocentered networks
  11. 11. The role of researchers • Situate data in an interpretative setting • This requires building tools allowing to sort, order, analyze and present what we agree on calling source or “raw” data • The issue of transdisciplinarity…

  13. 13. The politics of data visualization • Take into account the politics of quantified data representation (reminiscent of the debates about “who controls what’s on traditional media”) • Establishing priorities, selecting methods and procedures • Not sticking to tight scientific “realism”, but making sense of the data by building “heuristic narratives” which resound with (but are not limited to) empirical data. • “Telling stories with data”
