New spatial practices have deepened social inequalities and other urban problems in Brazilian cities. The process of formation, structuring and the respective tendencies of socio-spatial differentiation stimulated by external dynamics, added to neoliberal logics, have been aggravating and accelerating the process of socio-spatial ruptures, contributing to an increasingly heterogeneous and fragmented city. The city of Guarulhos (SP) has a dynamic of occupation and urban expansion that took place concomitantly with socio-spatial segregation, in a socio-spatial formation marked by small properties.The objective of this study is to identify the process of socio-spatial fragmentation and its consequences in the daily lives of citizens and to verify to what extent the scenario of diversity of urban sociability dwellers and to verify to what extent the scenario of diversity of urban sociability defines and is defined by the fragmentary logic. To this end, the methodological procedures adopted seek characterize the history of the city in structuring and restructuring processes and to carry out a study on the personal networks of city dwellers of different socio-spatial profiles, through techniques of analysis of social networks, in order to understand the fragmentary dynamics from the spatial practices of city dwellers in Guarulhos (SP).
