Rich Ling, Kristin Thrane


This paper is an analysis of how Norwegians use television and the Internet in their leisure time. It sets up a taxonomy using the degree of engagement in the mediated information on one axis and the degree of sociability on the other.

The analysis is based on 15 in-home interviews with Oslo-based families.
