Abstract

Our paper aims to analyze the role of ICT use in one’s social and professional integration. In this perspective, we considered social integration from the social capital theory point of view. We studied how structural, cognitive and relational capital, using theorized key components, can be predicted by digital skills. We measured professional social capital (α= .80), based on two new dimensions: the first is recognition and interactions (α = .82), and the second is ties and network (α= .70). Regression analyses found significant relations between ICT use and professional social capital (β = .368, p < .001). Which leads us to conclude to a mediating effect of recognition of digital skills on social and professional integration and revisiting social capital as a potential and a result of recognition and interactions.
