On Cybersocialites. Networked Communication and Social Interaction in the Wired City of Blacksburg, VA, USA.
Telematics and Informatics, v18 n1 p17-34 Feb 2001
The methodological sensibility that will lead to the consideration of the new forms of cybersociality is advanced. Cybersociality refers to the new expressions of "being together," sharing emotions, and communicating in networked social environments. Social interactions in the wired city of Blacksburg, Virginia are analyzed and three groups of users are examined, from a sociological approach, to see how they use the new forms of network communication.
