Abstract [sv]

This paper deals with the question why youths are publishing photos digitally and how they think about making private photographs public. It also looks into differences between men and women regarding their attitude towards publishing photos in this way.

By focus group interviews, we have examined how 18-year-old high school students in Sweden reflect over photos and photo publishing on the online social network

Facebook. Three focus groups consisting of women and three focus groups consisting of men were asked questions about four different themes: mediatization, integrity, self-presentation and ethics.

The results show that the youths live mediated lives and that there is, to them, an intimate link between their digital selves and their real life-selves. With the use of photographs, they re-tell events from real life on Facebook. They also use photographs to construct their digital selves, and these images are seen as important for how they are perceived by others. The girls in the focus groups claim that they publish more photos of themselves than the boys, and are more conscious of how they appear on these photos. The youths do take in mind how an unknown public can take part of the information that is digitally gathered about them, and therefore defend their integrity on Facebook since they want to control the existence of the photos they are occurring on. Furthermore, the youths show an understanding of the ethical dilemmas involved, but do not see this as a problem since they claim to often know the publisher of these photos, and express that since they only upload photos of their friends, they would never publish unethical photos on Facebook themselves.
