As mentioned in Ch. 5 of the textbook, new technologies and digital data are changing the way qualitative data is collected, coded, and measured. This article reviews how collaborative and interdisciplinary ethnographic research is sustained and enhanced by digital tools, creating a live source of data that can be analyzed within the framework of ethnography, a qualitative research method. The paper describes a two-year online and offline ethnographic project on social media use in later life to offer insights about the ways in which ethnographic research can utilize big social data.

The studies described contain mixed methods for data collection including performance measures as well as interviews and sharing circles.
