Abstract

We argue that along with social network analysis, or approaches focusing on social ties and social networks, researchers in information science can also benefit from looking at the identity bonding perspective. In this paper, by synthetic and critical reviewing literature on related work from sociology and information science, we provide a new theoretical lens that calls attention to the role played by social identity in creating and increasing social capital.
