Social interaction facilitated by the web has been an unknown factor in regional planning. What we did know is that hundreds of thousands of people browse the web every day. In particular, young people seemed to have embraced modern technology as a key element of their social interactions.
This report was commissioned in order to shed light on the social role that the web plays in the lives of the people who live in the Stockholm Region and to kickstart a discussion of the potential of the web to act as a bridging institution (meeting place) in which closer ties between the region’s inhabitants can be established.
The results point to the fact that the region also exists in the virtual world, a meeting place that is at least as popular as the world of clubs, voluntary associations or entertainment establishments. The challenge of taking full advantage of on-line life for the benefit of the Stockholm region’s development lies ahead of us.
