Title:Space Interpretation of Social Network Site from Cultural Perspective: A Case Study of Computer-mediated Collaboration in Digital Media Studio Project

Abstract:The purpose of this poster is to present how the space interpretation, as a cultural dimension, influences the students' usage of social network sites (SNSs) in computer-mediated collaboration at the University of Edinburgh. The results found that the private and public concepts were the core factors of space interpretation. Two primary social network sites, Facebook and Blog, were categorized into private and public space by students for different purposes in computer-mediated collaboration. Blog mainly represented as an exhibited space; Facebook was applied as a private space for sharing information and communicating, which also indicated the transformation of personal space cognition. Moreover, the space interpretation of SNS Facebook was influenced by different level of cultural diversity or homogeneity. The distance provided by Facebook was not close enough for a cultural diversity group to disclose their opinions during the collaboration. The study suggests that the cultural dimension can enhance the design of SNS for the customization and content control in improving information sharing and communicating which can optimize the usage of SNS for computer-mediated collaboration.
