"The rapid growth of online communication technologies—social media, distributed internet use, and mobile devices

capable of recording and sharing information spontaneously—has expanded opportunities for researchers to collect and

use digital-born data. Keeping up with the methods for conducting studies in an online environment requires new ways of

thinking about the overall research process. This impressive handbook, written by an international team of scholars,

facilitates such conceptualization for both novice and experienced researchers...The handbook's focus on

the social sciences makes one wish for a similarly useful companion handbook examining online research methods

applicable to the humanities and performing arts."

Summing Up: Highly recommended. Beginning students through professionals/practitioners.
