Jesse Rice: How the Hyperconnected Are Redefining Community

The Church of Facebook:
How the Hyperconnected Are Redefining Community
By Jesse Rice (David C. Cook)
A 2010 Outreach Resource of the Year

“For a growing number of people—especially those from younger generations—‘community’ is not understood as a dichotomy between ‘real’ or ‘online’ relationships, but as a composite of both. This growing reality forces us to adapt the way we think about community. It is no longer enough to define community in either good or bad terms, to debate whether one brand of relating (‘real’) is better than another (‘online’). … A more inclusive definition is needed, one that takes into account the fact that the always-on do not make traditional distinctions between real and online relationships.” —Jesse Rice, from the book
