Wellman’s Network Society Edit

"In networked societies, boundaries are more permeable, interactions with others are diverse, linkages switch between multiple networks, and hierarchies are flatter and more recursive... Hence, many people and organizations communicate with others in ways that ramify across group boundaries. Rather than relating to one group, they cycle through interactions with a variety of others, at work or in the community. Their work and community networks are diffuse and sparsely knit, with vague overlapping social and spatial boundaries. Their computer-mediated communication has become part of their everyday lives, rather than being a separate set of relationships." Kevin
