Project Description

Weblogs: Are they read and are they a reliable source of information?

Project Abstract

The main aim of this piece of research is to find out the extent of use of blogs amongst students and what their reasons are for using them. Expanding this, do they view blogs as a reliable source of information or as an individual�s viewpoint? Another objective will be to find out whether or not they are �Bloggers� themselves and if they are what their use of them is.

� Do they write about political opinions?
� Do they use them as part of their study at university?
� Do they view blogs as a valid source worthy of a citation in a piece of work?
