In this paper, we describe an ongoing research project to analyze and characterize how deaf users interact through Orkut Communities. The first step of the research has shown they are more connected than other communities, but their interaction through the communities is not much different from the use of others. Currently we are using the Semiotic Inspection Method to assess the sociability of members of deaf communities in Orkut.
