ABSTRACT

This research analyzed how smart devices and Social Network Service (SNS) change the construction of social capital. The results show that smart devices provide the foundation of expending ‘bridging social capital’ by offering various communication tools. SNS reinforces ‘bonding social capital’ and extends ‘bridging social capital’ by expanding social relationships from off-line to online and supporting the construction of online communities. In contrast, the use of SNS through smart devices is not related to the generation of social capital. However, it builds a multi-aspect social capital by making people participate in various social activities.
