The perceptions of network’s context and content of their members provide deeper insights into all the other issues of networking, knowledge sharing included. In our research these perceptions were related to member’s discourses to knowledge sharing. Even though this finding should not be adopted as a framework for future research, the contextual sensitivity approach should not be neglected in network research. (Less)
