Abstract [sv]

Användningen av sociala medier har ökat och är en självklar del av livet för många. Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur högskolestudenter påverkas av sociala medier och hur de använder sociala medier för att skapa social sammanhållning i klassen och i privatlivet. Vidare studerades eventuella skillnader mellan kvinnor och män samt hur studenterna uppfattade sociala mediers betydelse i allmänhet. Insamling av material gjordes genom kvalitativa intervjuer med en hermeneutisk metodansats. Åtta studenter på Högskolan i Halmstad intervjuades varav fyra män och fyra kvinnor. Materialet tolkades med teorierna tillhörighet av May, Scheffs sociala band och Goffmans frontstage och backstage. Resultaten som framkom visade att deltagarna påverkades av sociala medier, dels på ett negativt sätt då sociala medier kunde bidra till att användare jämför sig med andra men även på ett positivt sätt då sociala medier underlättade kommunikationen både i skolan och i privatlivet samt bidrog till social sammanhållning inom högskoleklassen.
