Description/Abstract

The Web offers social scientists and other researchers unprecedented data resources for primary empirical research and for the development of analytical and methodological skills. The ubiquity of confessional interviews across the mass media offers instant access to people’s everyday lives and thoughts. Reflecting on these developments, Savage and Burrows (2007) insist that academic researchers should engage seriously with the digital data that are produced outside the academy and that this data poses fundamental challenges for sociological practice.
