Modes of engagement, sharing and sociability associated with self-quantification practices
The discussion will focus, based on two articles ("Making room for numbers in self-tracking", and "Taking your 10,000 steps, really?") and the current survey (ANR project "Quantiself"), on the analysis of engagement in self-tracking practices and on the apprehension of forms of sharing and exchange around the data generated. The session will be an opportunity to present the behind-the-scenes of the collective survey through questionnaires and in-depth interviews and the specificities inherent to working on digital practices that are at once banal, tenuous and yet widely discussed. Finally, initial elements of analysis relating to the forms of circulation and discussion of these practices and the figures produced will be presented.

The seminar aims to develop current reflections about the use of digital data in the analysis of online practices and forms of participation. With the explosion of online communication, a richer and greater amount of information has become available to researchers to document practices in a variety of domains: consumption, political behavior, production of knowledge, sociability, democratic participation, controversy, etc. Evidence of practices and of communication occurring in these domains are now available on various media: forum, discussions lists, blogs, online press, social networks, dedicated exchange platforms, etc. Over the last few years, the use of these data for research purposes has become widespread but there is still little debate on the compilation of corpora, the methods of analysis and the articulation between digital analyses and more classical fieldwork in social science.
