About the Authors
  • Social platforms such as MySpace, Facebook and Twitter have rekindled the initial excitement of cyberspace. Text based computer-mediated communication has been enriched with face-to-face communication such as Skype, as users move from desk tops to laptops with integrated cameras and related hardware. Age, gender and culture barriers seem to have crumbled and disappeared as the user base widens dramatically. Other than simple statistics relating to e-mail usage, chatrooms and blog subscriptions, we know surprisingly little about the rapid changes taking place. This book assembles leading researchers on non-verbal communication, emotion, cognition and computer science to summarize what we know about the processes relevant to face-to-face communication as it pertains to telecommunication, including video-conferencing. The authors take stock of what has been learned regarding how people communicate, in person or over distance, and set the foundations for solid research helping to understand the issues, implications and possibilities that lie ahead.

    • Features new research on the challenges and implications of face-to-face communication as new hardware and software emerges onto the market
    • Provides the groundwork for systematic interdisciplinary research in many areas of psychology, communications, engineering, neuroscience, anthropology and sociology
    • Will be of interest to anybody involved in the implications of changes in communication styles and media in the age of Web 2.0

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...Kappas and Krämer’s book will be of interest and value for students and researchers of communication generally, particularly for those with specialties of computer-mediated communication. Face-to-Face Communication Over the Internet will also be worthwhile for the general reader who likes common sense measured against empirical data." br/>--Catherine Scott, PhD, Swinburne University of Technology, PsycCRITIQUES
