文章题目:The implications of  Social Capital for the Digital Divides in America

Abstract

The existing literature is orientedtoward examining how Internet

access and use may affect social capital.The role of social

capital in narrowing the digital divideshas been frequently mentioned

but few studies have empirically examinedhowvarious types

of social capital may affect people’saccess and use of the Internet.

Drawing on a two-wave national panel dataset, this article aims

to fill this gap. Results demonstratethat social capital facilitates

Internet access and use. In particularresource-rich bonding social

capital helps overcome the digitaldivides in access, general use,

and online communication. Before theInternet can revitalize social

capital, there must be the right socialcapital in place to close

the digital divides. Highlighting therelationship between social

connectivity and digital connectivity,the findings have important

implications for policymakers andpractitioners.

Keywords

digital divides, embedded resources, social capital, strong

ties, weak ties
