Abstract

This thesis is a visual Internet ethnographic study that draws on qualitative ethnographic interviews with international students in Australia and Finland to analyse social networking practices, examining the construction and curation of digital identities that address multiple audiences in home and host countries. It applies Bhabha's "Third Space" to the transnational multicultural environment of Facebook, investigating how a Third Space is evidenced in the online world of international students.
