Digital sociology aims to understand human behavior and interactions in the digital space. As technology and digital platforms increasingly become ubiquitous, so does the need to understand how such phenomena impact individuals and societies. Social inequalities in the offline space are often mirrored in the online space, thus the purpose of digital sociology is to analyze how digital data is causing changes (either negative or positive) in social groups. Digital sociology may overlap with computer science in that both study technological processes. However, digital sociology takes into account the impact digitization has on the human experience – how is it helping or hurting us? As we advance through the 4th industrial revolution, through the use of cyber-physical systems, technology, and human experience are becoming progressively interwoven. The emergence of Digital Sociology is a result of this progression to combat social problems that arise in the online space.
