    Abstract

    In this paper we examine the identity work involved in negotiating work-life boundaries and the implications new digital media may have for this. We used an innovative combination of video diaries and follow-up interviews with fifteen social entrepreneurs to provide detailed and reflexive insights into participants’ lived experiences. In this paper, we present some preliminary analysis, which indicates the tension between community- and family-oriented identities for the social entrepreneurs, and the implications of this for on-line identity management. Our main aims from the session are to elicit discussion both of the development of the underlying theoretical framework and the data collection technique.
