The higher educated mobilize more support from the Internet

In this new open access publication in Information, Communication & Society Uwe Matzat and I find that the higher educated mobilize more problem-focused coping resources (i.e. information and support that help them deal with stressful events) from the Internet when they are in trouble (compared to the lower educated). When we compared the gap between the higher educated and lower educated online versus offline, we found that the differences online were smaller.
