Faith Online (07 Apr 2004)
The study found that those we have termed the "online faithful" are not using the Internet solely to learn about or interact with others within their own faith groups, nor are they using the Internet primarily to facilitate congregational business. Members of this group are most interested in using the Internet to express their own personal religious or spiritual beliefs (as measured in this study by the passing along of religious or spiritual emails, the sending of e-greeting cards, and the soliciting of prayer requests). To a lesser extent, they are also interested in seeking information about their own traditions and about the traditions of others.
