ABSTRACT. Hindman et al. undertake a large-scale survey of the political content available online, involving iterative crawling away from political sites easily accessible through popular online search tools, and using sophisticated automated methods to categorize site content. As Sciadas puts it, key outcomes of ICTs are manifested in shifting behavioural patterns everywhere, with real consequences. Wellman and Hogan discuss how the use of the Internet affects traditional social and communal behaviors, such as communication with local family and commitment to geographical communities. Quan-Haase et al. remark that as the Internet is incorporated into the routine practices of everyday life, social capital is becoming augmented and more geographically dispersed.
