Hi Siriam,

from the linguistic perspective, there are a number of studies of 
code-switching online and its implications (not exclusively, but often 
in diasporic settings).

For example:

Paolillo, John	1996	Language choice on soc.culture.punjab. Electronic 
Journal of Communication 6(3).

Hinrichs, Lars	2006	Codeswitching on the Web: English and Jamaican 
Creole in E-mail Communication. Amsterdam: Benjamins.

And a number of papers in:

Danet, Brenda and Susan Herring (eds.)	2007	The Multilingual Internet: 
Language, Culture, and Communication Online. Oxford: Oxford University 

The paper by Jannis Androutsopoulos (Language Choice and Code Switching 
in German-Based Diasporic Web Forums) is particularly intersting.

Best wishes
