Dear Air-L mailing members; 

This new article authored by Leopoldina Fortunati, Federico de Luca, and I, might be of interest to some of AoIR list members: 

Fortunati, Leopoldina, Taipale, Sakari & de Luca, Federico (2013) What happened to body-to-body sociability? Social Science Research, http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.ssresearch.2012.12.006 

It is dealing with a vividly discussed issue of whether ICTs affect people's sociability. We use a large two-wave survey data collected from EU5 countries in 1996 and 2009 to show how sociability has evolved over time and how this change is associated with ICTs.

With best wishes, 

Dr Sakari Taipale
