Resumen

CARDENAS BERRIO, María Karla; PARET MESA, Daniela; CAMPOS POSADA, Raúl  y  CAMPOS POSADA, Gloria Elisa. Mediations in the social use of the Internet by Cuban university students of Information Sciences, Journalism and Social Communication. Rev. cuba. inf. cienc. salud [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.2, pp.1-20. ISSN 2307-2113.

The purpose of the study was to inquire into the main mediations influencing the process of social use of the Internet by students from the School of Communication of the University of Havana in the school year 2015-2016, particularly mediations influencing social use of the Internet by students of Information Sciences, Social Communication and Journalism from the School of Communication. The research applied a mixed approach based on quantitative and qualitative triangulation techniques such as questionnaires and in-depth interviews. Results show that students share common mediations: the generational group is ICT-related majors, due to which students make intensive use of the Internet, partly motivated by the various technology subjects they receive. Most students' parents have a high schooling level, and most of them had Internet access for the first time upon entering the University, an important institutional mediation in the use of the Internet. The main social uses students make of the Internet are academic, followed by socialization, including broad use of social networks. The university institution is one the most important mediators conditioning these processes, for it provides general Internet access as well as training in the main competencies needed for conscious and critical social use.

Palabras clave : mediations; social uses of the Internet; information and communication technologies (ICTs); university students; Cuba.
