Metadata and its impact on our digital integrity (English)
Abstract [en]

The paper describes a qualitative study of users' attitudes to metadata in relation to their knowledge and how it affects their valuation of digital integrity. Method for data collection is semi-structured interviews and a critical event. The informants were two people who work with IT and two who do not. The theories of undesign, utilitarianism and privacy were chosen to discuss in relation to the result. A thematic analysis method is used to find relationships between attitudes and other interesting themes in the result. These themes, which we have named after the main attitudes of the informants, includes inter alia knowledge, trust, suspicion and positivity. In the discussion chapter, the results are linked with the analysis and answer the research question. The conclusion is that there is no clear correlation between the informants' knowledge and their attitude, knowledge of metadata has little significance for the attitude and the knowledge and attitudes have little effect on the evaluation of integrity among our four informants.

Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsen behandlar en kvalitativ studie av användares attityder till metadata i relation till deras kunskap samt hur det påverkar deras värdering av digital integritet. Metod för datainsamling är semistrukturerade intervjuer samt en kritisk händelse. Informanterna var två personer som är yrkesverksamma inom IT och två som inte är det. Teorierna avdesign, utilitarism samt privatliv valdes ut att diskuteras i relation till resultatet. En tematisk analysmetod används för att hitta samband mellan attityder och andra intressanta teman i resultatet. Dessa teman, som är döpta efter de huvudsakliga attityderna informanterna uppvisat, var bland annat kunskap, tillit, misstänksamhet och positivitet. I diskussionskapitlet sammankopplas resultatet med analysen och besvarar forskningsfrågan. Slutsatsen av denna studie är att vi inte funnit något samband mellan de fyra informanternas kunskap och deras attityd, kunskap om metadata har liten betydelse för attityden och att kunskaperna och attityderna i liten del påverkar värderingen av integritet.
