WG 3 “The role of media and ICT use for evolving social relationships”

WG 3 “The role of media and ICT use for evolving social relationships” investigates relationships in a wide range of media, combining on the one hand the interpersonal dimension of social relationships with a mass communication dimension, and, on the other hand, ‘traditional’ media (such as television, newspapers) with ‘new’ media (i.e. ICT).
