New information and communication technologies can be best featured by two properties : their integrative dimension of functionalities previously separated, and their equivocity, which implies a process of appropriation and sensemaking.Interested in the case of Internet technologies, typical of new information and communication technologies, we wondered how managers appropriate these new tools, and wished to initiate a reflexion about the relevance of these appropriations.Our study, which lies within the scope of Adaptative Structuration Theory (AST), leads to the construction of five individual appropriation patterns of Internet technologies : the task centered pattern, the symbolic tool centered pattern, the sharing out tool centered pattern, the influence tool centered pattern, and the last one, the fun centered pattern.
