Self-Producer`S Journey: Identity Construction and Transformation in Self-Production

Through netnographic analysis of six online cooking communities, this study reveals the bi-directional relationships among the act of self-production, self-producer`s identities, and the community around the act. Furthermore, the findings render the need to define and highlight the unique properties (e.g., practice and learning orientations) of self-production communities.
