Abstract

The use of the Internet as a medium for conducting research is not a new concept and certainly one that is constantly evolving. The online environment represents numerous opportunities for methodological innovations. Online discussions are a “permutation” of the traditional focus groups, which have been closely associated to qualitative research and the production of rich, textual data relating to the participants’ lives and experiences.
