Abstract: Social contract is the surrender of certain individual freedoms to a higher authority, in exchange for the protection of natural rights. It is an exchange between two parties for the improvement of the existing status. Contemporary idea of social contract can benefit from the informal civic dialogue on social media that would encourage a mutual rapport. A grounded theory analysis of Singapore's socio-political blogs and readership (blogosphere) were accomplished in order to examine the engaging factors that would reveal through the data. The analysis revealed that political trust as one of the engaging elements in dejected jeopardy. Thus, as a mitigating factor to strengthen the mutual engagement by strengthening the political trust, authors would suggest empathy. Empathy has been discussed as the ability to see things from the other person's point of view, which will ensure a more effective communications, understandings and practices. © 2013 IADIS.
