Sociability and new technologies in reading practices. A study in City of Mexico
The new information technologies have transformed reading practices in meaningful ways,promoting other skills and competences,and activating new ways of interacting with reading devices. Based on a qualitative study conducted in Mexico City,this article aims to explore how communicational innovations have had an impact on a specific type of reader,whose distinctive feature is to have an intense and/or enjoyable relationship with the act of read: the cultural creators. The analysis of these practices and the reflection as a result of this,allows us to observe that,far from creating isolated readers,the emerging technologies contribute to develop,in other ways,the potential for the sociability of reading,thus stimulating work networks and collaborative projects.
