How does the online activity distort, or shape the offline world? And what are the emerging modes of community, sociality, media literacy, creativity and politics traversing online and offline spaces as Web 2.0 and social networked media burgeon? This book seeks to consider these questions by drawing on case studies which all describe #xE2;#xAC;Sa day in the life#xE2;#xAC; in a cross-generational, cross-class familial context at six locations #xE2;#xAC;#x1D; Manila, Tokyo, Seoul, Singapore, Shanghai and Melbourne #xE2;#xAC;#x1D; bringing new insights into localized and regional online communities that are as dynamic and ever-evolving as the internet itself. Employing comprehensive, cross-disciplinary frameworks from theoretical approaches such as media sociology, ethnography, cultural studies and media and communication studies, Online@AsiaPacificwill be of huge interest to students and scholars of Asian culture and society, cybercultures, new media studies, communication studies and internet studies.
