How is information experienced in creating and sharing content? Is it merely a concrete object? A more abstract idea? This chapter explores how teens experienced information while creating and sharing content in digital communities. Teens engaged in different forms of content creation but had similar experiences of information that included: participation, inspiration, collaboration, process, and artifact. The findings in this chapter are part of a larger whole that defined the information practices of teens, suggesting how information is experienced is a component of information practices and should be understood as such. The information experiences described here emerged through a grounded theory study of teen content creators. The analysis of the data was informed by constructionism, and the emergent theory was informed by practice theory.
