Title: The Network Geographies of Singaporeans
Abstract: Social contacts change one's social network geography, due to the interplay between communication and transportation systems, lower generalized costs and changing social practices (Frei and Axhausen 2009). Although individuals utilize communication technologies to maintain their strong social and spatial ties (Beck 1992; Bauman 2000); occasional travel is still pertinent for building social capital as the human touch is irreplaceable (Kaufmann 2002, Frei and Axhausen 2007). This project illustrates the social network geographies of Singaporeans, and how their network capital, or access to communication technologies and affordable and well-connected transport (Larsen and Urry et al. 2006) impinges upon their ability to maintain meetingness. [Meetingness refers to the amount of time people spend talking, writing, emailing, travelling and visiting with network members (Urry 2003)]. This project investigates whether meetingness contributes to social capital (i.e. life satisfaction, educational success and labor outcomes (Lin and Ensel et al. 1981; Fernandez and Weinberg 1997; Lin 1999), and whether this is enhanced by diversity or geography. According to Nan Lin, dispersion across multiple states in America increases a person's social capital. This project will explore whether this holds true for Singapore, a country with land area of 710 km2?Diversity in personal networks is also significant as personal communities are specialized - different community members supply different types of social support (Wellman and Wortley 1990). This project will explore whether the diversity of a personīs network is enhanced by its geographical spread, resulting in better outcomes for individual Singaporeans.
