This paper delivers insights on migrants’ political uses of the Internet in Germany, focusing especially on their relationships to their country of origin and residence, as it is displayed by their online communication behavior. Thereby examples of different migrant groups will illustrate how the Internet can be used to establish transnational networks, support Diaspora activities or reinforce national “ethnic” public spheres on the Internet.
