Hi everybody


My name is Vanya. I am new here and have really enjoyed all of your discussions thus far. I am a graduate student at the LSE (London School of Economics). I am interested in doing my dissertation on Facebook and the idea of online communities' changing/re-defining social relations. I would like to explore the nature of online/offline relationships. Do any of you know of any published research on this subject or have comments/input/suggestions for me? Your help/direction/advice will greatly be appreciated. Thank you all

  I apoligze for a terribly inarticulate question. If the Internet is defined purely as technology then with is the best term to describe that which is not technology. I'm struggle with the concept of space as used in social space, cyberspace, virtual space etc.
  As scientist we seem to have a responsibility to operationalize the terms we use.
