Social Computing:  Implications for E Government

Rhoda C. Joseph, Pennsylvania State University Harrisburg, USA
Jose Esteves, Instituto de Empresa Business School, Spain

This article examines the area of social computing and its implications for electronic government (e  government). Social computing is a broad term that refers to different products and services that supports human interaction in a computer mediated environment. Terms such as online communities, peer networking, and social software have overlapping meanings with social computing (Parameswaran and Whinston, 2007). E government refers to the delivery of government services via information and communications technology to citizens, businesses, employees, government agencies, and special interest groups. In this article, the authors present a theoretical model for the application of social computing in the area of e government and the authors use an analysis of state websites to assess the extent of social computing development in the e government domain.
