Title: Bloggers at Crossroads: An Exploration of Bloggers’ Adaptation to Post-Revolution Tunisia
Author: Laflamme, Nicolas

Abstract: This thesis examines the extent to which bloggers’ have adapted their practices and behaviors after the Revolution in Tunisia. This inductive qualitative research merged two bodies of literature (digital politics’ literature and Sociologie des usages’ literature) in order to build an innovative theoretical framework and three exploratory categories of analysis: i) change of bloggers’ profile, ii) change of the platform and the use of ICTs, and iii) change of the targeted audience. Indeed, this paper argues that bloggers adapted to the new political and media environment by questioning their individual motivation to express online and their writing style, by maximizing their use of digital new platforms following their potentials for content production and diffusion, and by partially adjusting their practices to their audience’s needs and expectations.
