Abstract: Uncertainty reduction plays an important role in interpersonal relations. However, despite the online social networking is booming, little is known about how offline interpersonal uncertainty influences online social networking behavior. This study seeks to bridge the gap between these two. A survey of 244 Facebook users examined the mediating effects of offline liking and intimacy in predicting the use of online interactive uncertainty reduction strategies. In general, individuals’ online social networking is forced by their offline relational status. For those uncertain about their partners, liking and intimacy diminish the impact of uncertainty and motivate online interactions. For individuals uncertain about their relationships, liking and intimacy reinforce the impact of uncertainty and discourage online networking. Implications for future research are discussed.

Abstract: Amidst growing concerns over the contentious tenor of online political discourse, scholars have begun to recognize that the social contexts and affordances provided by social media may present indirect pathways from online political expression to offline political participation. Less work has addressed how the motivations of social media users might influence such dynamics. We use two-wave panel survey data collected in the United States to test the possibility that online cross-cutting political discussion can indirectly lead to offline political participation, through the influence of social media political information sharing. We also test how specific motivations for using social media (political engagement, relationship maintenance, self-promotion) moderate the amount users share political information on social media when engaged in conversations involving political disagreement. Our findings advance one route from online political disagreement to offline political action through political information sharing, which can impact both politically and non-politically motivated social media users.

Abstract: This paper builds on past studies of virtual community by illuminating the effect of offline gatherings (“meetups”) on physically dispersed virtual communities. While research to date has examined the way in which online interaction affects offline community, the question of how offline interaction affects online community has largely been ignored. Non-obtrusive analysis of over eight years of user activity from a large, active online community suggests that the development of multiplex relationships –relationships maintained both online and off –enhances attendees’ engagement with the online community as a whole, strengthens ties to other attendees, and contributes to the creation of bonding social capital. However, weak ties with non-attendees dissolve and bridging social capital is sacrificed as those who meet offline favor interaction with other attendees.
