Being Social on the Internet

I’m reading an article* from 2001 titled the “Social Implications of the Internet” and it’s a little amazing how things have changed in a decade. The authors review literature in 5 categories: inequality, community and social capital, political participation, organizations and other economic institutions, and cultural participation/diversity. (taken from abstract which should be available on google scholar)

Now where does me blogging about this…and posting on twitter about it… fit into the research?

*For my independent study topic for this semester.
