Abstract

The aim of this study is to develop deeper and broader levels of conceptual understanding relating to the impacts that political blogs give socially to the community focusing on Perlis citizen. In examining the increasingly common social activity of blogging, we must consider the experiences, roles, and contributions of readers, even when less readily apparent than those of bloggers. This study presents a qualitative study that focuses on the social impact of political blog on Perlis citizen. The findings presented in this study indicate that the activity of blogging, of which readers are an integral part, is far more heterogeneous and multifaceted. This study describes various ways in which blog reading is more than just reading. It leads the reader to form complex definitions of the term "blog" each of which differs to varying degrees from the definitions used by bloggers. The study also offers a view into the perception of the digital presentation of self in blogs. Blog reading allows for widely varied means of "being a part" giving rise to new notions of community and belonging.
