Americans have drastically expanded their active communities online and offline. Their world is expanding and narrowing at the same time because of social media’s hyperlocalization quotient. And “cyberdisinhibition”—being more willing to behave online in ways they wouldn’t in person—has both emboldened users and led them to inappropriate behavior. These are among the findings from a nationwide study on social media conducted by Euro RSCG Worldwide. Despite buzz to the contrary, online social networking is having the effect of enhancing, not deteriorating, relationships among Americans. This new study, of 1,228 American social media users, found that by interacting through online media, consumers are more connected than ever.
