Resumen

Actualmente, la comunicación informal global abarca géneros digitales que promueven interacciones dialógicas e inmediatas. Ejemplo de ello son los blogs, donde la interacción de los usuarios se realiza mediante el género del comentario a un post anterior. En un corpus de 15 entradas de 5 blogs de viajes, se han analizado 318 comentarios para estudiar la participación internacional en la blogosfera de distintos usuarios de la lengua inglesa, nativos y no nativos. Se explora la cantidad y extensión de sus contribuciones para considerar el posible impacto de sus características linguaculturales en contextos de comunicación digital a través de ILF. Un análisis discursivo de los comentarios de blogs de viajes derivado de los datos enfatiza las características principales del género para comprender mejor este discurso digital y así favorecer una participación internacional efectiva en este contexto en la web.
