Abstract

This paper explores how to support the building of networks and network social capital in place-based communities through the use of internet and personal communications technologies. The trends away from conventional neighbourhood interactions to interactions centred around the workplace, personal interests and personalised networking are examined. Through a case study, new forms of interactions in neighbourhoods are identified. Preliminary implications for the support of neighbourhood interactions as well as a framework for understanding community interactions are presented.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
