#研究分享#【我只是Google一下:分布式发现的民间理论】很少有人能不定期的关注新闻,越来越多的人依靠分布式发现(特别是结交媒体和搜索引擎)来获取一定的信息量。研究者选取了新闻消费的民间理论视角进行分析,确定了三种互补的民间理论:“新闻发现我”,“信息就在那里”,“我不知道该相信什么”。 消费者在理解这些理论时从中汲取营养。在这里,民间理论的概念有助于解开人们在数字媒体和公共事务中所依赖的不同的、互补的、有时甚至是矛盾的文化资源。

A significant minority of people do not follow news regularly, and a growing number rely on distributed discovery (especially social media and search engines) to stay informed. Here, we analyze folk theories of news consumption. On the basis of an inductive analysis of 43 in-depth interviews with infrequent users of conventional news, we identify three complementary folk theories (“news finds me,” “the information is out there,” and “I don’t know what to believe”) that consumers draw on when making sense of their information environment. We show that the notion of folk theories help unpack the different, complementary, sometimes contradictory cultural resources people rely on as they navigate digital media and public affairs, and we argue that studying those who rarely engage directly with news media but do access information via social media and search provides a critical case study of the dynamics of an environment increasingly defined by platforms.
