I am a doctoral researcher focusing on people’s experiences of using and adopting Social Networking Sites (SNSs) as information resources in their everyday life.
My research is interdisciplinary, and it draws on Information Science, Media and Communication, Informatics, and Human Computer Interaction scholarship and theories to shed light on a complex sociotechnical phenomenon that raises critical information and communication concerns in our contemporary society.
I specifically examine people’s engagement in online information practices through Facebook groups, and the ways they manage and navigate a complex sociotechnical landscape of seeking and sharing information through these sites. Some of my research interests include information credibility and trust, information privacy, collaborative information seeking and sharing, norms and values of online participation, online communities.
Before my PhD, I obtained my Master of Informatics and Business Development from the Faculty of Science and Engineering, School of Computer Science, Physics and Mathematics, Linnaeus University, Sweden. I obtained my Bachelor of Information Systems from the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, Najah National University, Palestine.
