Abstract

This paper sets out to develop a theoretical framework for examining implications of ICT uses for digital inequality in the domain of social interaction. First, by drawing on social affordances perspective, this study seeks to establish an additional dimension of digital skills, namely, online social networking skills. Additionally, by offering a nuanced framework to theorize the relationship between online social networking skills and practice of communication multiplexity this paper connects the notion of online social networking skills to the perspective of communication multiplexity in order to explore the implications of interactional ICT use for digital inequality.
