Social change, daily life, and the Internet


The increasing pervasiveness of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) has fuelled a major academic controversy about their social consequences. Despite ICTs encompass various technologies which are now widely available, the debate has been crystallizing on the narrower question of the consequences of the Internet on social capital. In this paper I review the theoretical and empirical background of this debate and outline a set of methodological innovations that need to occur before it can be empirically resolved.
