Communication and Content Strategy for HooDoo Brewing Co.

Review: Homesteading on the Electronic Frontier

“Virtual communities are social aggregations that emerge from the Net when enough people carry on those public discussions long enough, with sufficient human feeling, to form webs of personal relationships in cyberspace.” (Howard Rheingold, The Virtual Community; Homesteading on the Electronic Frontier)

Hello? Is it me you’re looking for?

Researchers probably could have never predicted the impact of social implications in Internet use.  The early days of gratifications research must have been wild with theories and ideas about what holds a user at an online environment, why are they attracted to it, and what do they want to do when they get there.  Accompanying this research was a fair amount of consumer behavior, marketing and sales theory.  All of this research and theory was the basis of not only understanding the social interconnectedness of Internet users, but also how brands and organizations can better interact with these people.
