Abstract

Guided by the conceptual framework proposed by House and Kahn (1985), this study was conducted to explore types of social support observed within the online public support groups targeting people living with HIV/AIDS in 30 days. Analysis of 113 messages collected through six randomly selected groups showed that most interactions observed were categorized as information support (47.5%) and emotional support (28.9%).
