I am studying the impact of the internet on a cultural practice in my country. I have been working on this project for months. I have already started data collection and analysis. However, lately I've become unsure of my principal research question. So, I'm studying an online community through online ethnography.
I am sure it is only a problem with the wording of the question.
What is the impact of the internet on ...?
I wonder if this is a qualitative question because I've read that qualitative questions should not start with 'what'. Is studying the impact of the internet on a phenomenon consistent with my methodology?
