In this framework, the present paper discusses the opportunity of evaluating both bloggers’ per-sonalities and their social relationships quality using blog as a new research methodology. Blog usagedata, Big Five personality traits, Interpersonal relationships quality and Internet addiction were evalu-ated in a population of 30 Italian bloggers.
