The What, When, and Why of
Digital Ethnography

  • What is digital ethnography icon
    What :
    Digital ethnography is a qualitative methodology that immerses researchers in the everyday lives of their users so they can observe them in real-world situations and gain a deeper understanding of their needs.
  • When to use digital ethnography icon
    When :
    Digital ethnography is most often used to learn how to make a product better, or even more critically, to decide what products to build in the first place. It's leveraged by researchers to cast a wide net early in a product's development to find business opportunities and to see where people are facing frustrations.
  • Why conduct digital ethnographies icon
    Why :
    Really Get to Know Your Users: Nothing happens in a vacuum. Behaviors and decisions are nuanced, so to understand them, you need context. Digital ethnography provides valuable context that allows researchers to understand their users on a deeper level.
    Identify Pain Points and Opportunities: Researchers can remotely observe users in real world situations, allowing them to identify pain points and opportunities that wouldn't arise in a lab or controlled environment.
    It's Authentic: You can learn a lot from studying animals in a zoo, but there's no replacement for observing them in the wild. The same can be said for studying user behavior in a lab vs. everyday life.
