Abstract

We live in a time of great historical transformation given by immense number of processed information and thus, a multiplication of connections and networks. Nevertheless, in the era of accelerated migration there is no successful integration model and there is no successful attempt to approach this problem from the Internet. Recent proliferation of Web communities brought to life new social dynamics and values that could help to overcome some traditional problems of immigrants.
