Abstract

This paper investigates the question of the impact of use of various facilities of the Worldwide Web on patterns of sociability. Its sets out a neo-functionalist model of socio-technical innovation which is designed to explore prospectively the impact of innovations in areas such as Information and Communications Technology, on the full range of sociable and non-sociable activities. And it uses evidence from a unique dataset (a nationally representative time diary panel study, collected in the UK for the period 1999-2001) to explore this model.
