Document Summary

Those included in a network may only come into occasional contact and usually lack a sense of boundaries and belonging. In last decade social networking has take off in ways that would have been unthinkable years ago. Facebook has now become the medium of choice (formerly msn and icq were the only forms of social networking online) Employees, students, professionals and even politicians use social media and networking to stay connected and also to exchange information with other (i. e. twitter, facebook, youtube, blogs) Wellman and gulia (1999): disagree with this general rule of thumb: say that people who establish contact over the internet are able to build meaningful relationships and a sense of community. Some relationships are weak while others are strong and broadly supportive. Some are short-lived, while others grow and flourish. Online contact complements and enhances face-to-face relationships or helps to maintain ties between people separated by distance.
