Abstract

Based on survey data gathered before and after September 11, 2001 ('9/11'), this study examines the relationship between 'internet connectedness' and communicative actions after September 11 2001. The study found that: (1) people heightened their dependency relations with traditional mass media after September 11, regardless of whether or not they had an internet connection; (2) 'internet high-connectors' intensified their internet connections, while 'internet low-connectors' decreased the intensity of their internet connections; and (3) internet high-connectors participated in a broader range of civic activities in response to September 11 than did internet low- and non-connectors.
