Abstract

The relationships between phenomena observed in the real world and their representations in virtual contexts have generated interest among researchers. In particular, the manifestations of social movements in virtual environments have been examined, with many studies dedicated to the analysis of the virtual linkages between groups. In this research, a form of link analysis was performed to examine the relationship between virtual linkage intensity and real world physical proximity among the social movement groups identified in the Southern Poverty Law Center Spring 2009 Intelligence Report. Findings indicate the existence of significant relationships between virtual linkage intensity and physical proximity, distinctive to various ideological categorizations. The results provide valuable insights into the behaviors of social movements in virtual environments.
