Dynamiques des réseaux relationnels et trajectoires sociales d'usage des TIC au moment du passage à la vie adulte

Abstract : The socialization process can be understood as movements of proximal interpersonal relationships. Using structural and qualitative information from our longitudinal study, this thesis analyses the development of sixty young people's personal networks over a period of nine years: the process of entering adulthood. This issue is tackled through observation of the domestication of ICT's during this period. The uses of ICT are studied through the complex relation between social networks and individual biographical trajectories.
The first part deals with possession of particular ICT goods. The typology employed highlights the fact that diversity in ICT adoption is linked to different models of transition to adulthood. These models are defined by observing the relationship between matrimonial and occupational careers.
Then detailed portraits are given, from each type, to show the links between personal trajectories, networks and usages of ICT as people grow up. Dynamics of use appear to be deeply associated with typical biographical rhythms and strongly influenced by social and educational background, as well as gender differences.
