La configuration des pratiques d'information selon la logique des situations.

Abstract : How are information practices distributed around successive uses of different media? In this article the author posits that the selection of information sources cannot be explained only in terms of the cultural legitimacy of that information or of individuals' socio-demographic profiles. He argues that the selection of media, and the uses to which they are put, are also based on opportunities in everyday situations. Through several paradigmatic examples, he describes how these opportunities correspond to local affordances, whether in the general environment consisting mainly of the media and ICT, or in the possibility of using a medium in the presence of other people and simultaneously doing something else.
