Talk:Sociology of the Internet

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


The section on fiction, as seen here, has been removed, because: 1) it describes a few arbitrary selected works which mention the Internet (good perhaps as a Fiction section in the generic Internet article but with no relation to sociology) 2) it is unreferenced (the two references are simply to pages confirming the existence of the fiction work). In order for such a section to remain in the article it would need to specifically address the issue of fiction and the Internet from the sociological perspective, and have proper references to back it up (i.e. respect WP:V and avoid WP:OR). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 13:53, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Many other articles have a section about " fiction". About things you say: 1) If you think there are few works, another can add more fiction works. 2) The main references are in the article about each work (ie: references to film The Net in article The Net and so on). All these works are about Internet in society. (talk) 21:07, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Re: "many other articles" - we have an argument here, other stuff exists - it doesn't mean it should :) More seriously, please look at this policy: Wikipedia:No original research. You will have to find references which say that those works are relevant to the sociology of the Internet. If you find ones that do confirm they are relevant to article on Internet in society, this is where you should add them (let's not confuse society and sociology). Or perhaps you may want to create an article on Internet in popular culture, or list of works about society and the Internet (although keep in mind that such topics have to confirm to another policy, Wikipedia:Notability). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 00:00, 31 March 2010 (UTC)


Seems like it would be good to have a section on internet culture. T.216.57|talk]]) 21:27, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Section or category on institutions that specialize in this area[edit]

This is one of those "that would be awesome" posts. A Google search with poor hits for university programs, for example, gives me the sense that this is strangely still an emerging field. See also Talk:Anthropology of cyberspace. Eekiv 22:58, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Change article title to Sociology of Cyberspace[edit]

as that is the article's subject. See Cyberspace. (talk) 08:31, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Internet criticism[edit]

There is nothing written here (or on the main article) on perceived negative consequences of internet use, such as addiction, alienation, etc. Lachlan Foley (talk) 06:55, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
