Networked: The New Social Operating System, LRainie & BWellman (2012)

June 2, 2012

See on Scoop.itMore … or less!

“People are becoming more aware that each individual is at the center of his or her own personal network: a solar system of one to two thousand and more people orbiting around us. Each person has become a communication and information switchboard connecting persons, networks, and institutions. At the same time, each person has become a portal to the rest of the world, providing bridges for their friends to other social circles. With the size and complexity of these networks, each networked individual has to balance out collective and interpersonal commitments in unique ways.”

[p. 55]
