The notion of social informatics relates to the interaction between society and ICT (information-communication technologies). In its broadest sense it covers:

  1. the social consequences of ICT at micro (e.g. social aspects of ICT applications at personal and organisational level) as well as at macro level (e.g. information society studies);
  2. the application of ICT in the area of social sciences and  social/public sector;
  3. the use of ICT as a tool for studying social phenomena (within social science methodology).
