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.

Nerd, wife, knitter, writer, cat mom, and comic book reader w/masters of science in Applied Sociology. I have histamine intolerance, lots of food allergies and sensitivities - including gluten. And I have multiple sclerosis fibromyalgia, asthma, drug allergies, and migraines. Basically, I have a collection of invisible chronic health problems. I don't just survive these things, but sometimes I do hate them because I see doctors so often that keeping healthy and staying full time employed is currently impossible.
