Abstract

This study investigated the use of Facebook and Orkut by a group of immigrants in the U.S. with the purpose of understanding if these social networking environments fostered social and cultural identity of participants. Findings suggest that Facebook and Orkut proved to be more than communications tools for social and cultural exchanges. Rather, they were also conduits for learning, teaching, networking, and supporting each other.
