计算机中介的传播网络

这个研究调查了可能影响在线社区使用有影响的社会资本、媒介使用和人口统计学等诸多因素。尽管一些人认为互联网使用会侵蚀个人的社会资本,这个研究发现那些使用在线社区的人倾向于更善于交际,也有更高层次的社会规范。但是当把社会资本重要的社会心理因素如信任和生活满意考虑到内,社会资本也不完全与在线社区的使用有关。在这个层面上,在线社区可能会由于技术优势增强个人的沟通能力,但是传统社区中面对面的交流对保证社区质量来说也是十分重要的。

【文章摘要】The computer-mediated communication network

This research investigates various factors of social capital, media use and demographics that may have an influence on online community use. Although some have argued that internet use may erode an individual’s social capital, this study found that people who access the internet for online community use tend to have more sociability and higher levels of generalized norm than do online community non-users.When important socio-psychological factors of social capital, such as trust and life contentment, were considered, however, social capital was not fully related to online community use. In this regard, it is suggested that online communities may enhance the communication ability of individuals due to technological advantages, but face-to-face communication in the form of the traditional community is still essential to ensure the quality of community as a whole.
