This chapter offers a discussion of the findings and their theoretical and practical implications, conclusions, limitations of this project, and thoughts on how future research can advance the ideas raised in this volume.

- Social Medium
- Internet Access
- Digital Divide
- Information Communication Technology
- Citizen Participation
