Blogs and social networks are both spaces for online relationships that can be used for very different purposes. The aim of this paper is to compare the kind of relations that can be developed in these spaces through a corpus of different qualitative micro-sociological researches, conducted between 2006 and 2010, and focused on users and their cultural practices. The paper will provide first a theoretical framework for the analysis, going briefly through the development of internet and blog studies, and then will compare the forms of online relationships, focusing on empirical data and showing the platforms’ similarities and differences.
