This collection is a guide to greater communication efficiency in both clarity and time-management for any professional or aspiring professional. It guides the reader through the ways in which communicating through technology rather than face-to-face can alter their perceptions of others and the perceptions others make of them. Each chapter concisely summarizes existing studies from the fields of communication, psychology, philosophy, and engineering to lead the audience to very practical guidelines to make their professional communication world easier and more efficient. The book is divided into three sections. The first focuses on the more abstract components of communication, such as creating connections and navigating humor. The second part deals with more applied knowledge, offering guides to specific and common technologies used for communication such as email and video conferencing. The final section focuses on training for both trainers and trainees. The volume gathers together contributions by 29 scholars, all of whom offer their own unique expertise and guidance to the audience.

Computers and the Internet gave rise to the emergence of computer-mediated communication (CMC). The Influence of Computers, the Internet and Computer-Mediated Communication on Everyday English focuses on the use of English in connection with computers and the Internet and on its influences on everyday English by analysing the dispersal of new meanings of words, neologisms, features of CMC and new metaphors. The intention is to show the computer- and Internet-related impact on the English language from several perspectives and to take several ways into consideration in which the Internet and CMC are changing language use and to evaluate this influence -- at least as far as this is possible.

Text-based interaction among humans connected via computer networks, such as takes place via email and in synchronous modes such as “chat”, MUDs and MOOs, has attracted considerable popular and scholarly attention. This collection of 14 articles on text-based computer-mediated communication (CMC), is the first to bring empirical evidence from a variety of disciplinary perspectives to bear on questions raised by the new medium. The first section, linguistic perspectives, addresses the question of how CMC compares with speaking and writing, and describes its unique structural characteristics. Section two, on social and ethical perspectives, explores conflicts between the interests of groups and those of individual users, including issues of online sex and sexism. In the third section, cross-cultural perspectives, the advantages and risks of using CMC to communicate across cultures are examined in three studies involving users in East Asia, Mexico, and students of ethnically diverse backgrounds in remedial writing classes in the United States. The final section deals with the effects of CMC on group interaction: in a women's studies mailing list, a hierarchically-organized workplace, and a public protest on the Internet against corporate interests.

Computer-mediated communication (CMC) is one of the most exciting areas of study in the communication discipline today. Computer technology is rapidly changing the way we communicate, allowing us to simultaneously be both connected and mobile. This connected mobility changes not only our communication ability but our relational expectations as well. Participating in CMC through texting, tweeting, Snapchat, email, FaceTime, social media, or video-conferencing is unavoidable in the 21st century. Computer-Mediated Communication: Approaches and Perspectives describes five approaches and multiple perspectives on the influences of this technologically-mediated communication on interpersonal and social relationships. The five approaches examine the constraints, experience, language, opportunities, and implications of CMC. The book develops these approaches through the perspectives of media richness, naturalness, affordances, domestication, presence, social presence, propinquity, social information processing, hyperpersonal relationships, social identity model of deindividuation effects, virtual identities, virtual networks and teams, virtual communities, the Proteus effect, actor networks, and media niches. The book develops each perspective through a description, illustration, critique, and analysis of usefulness. Each chapter contains a computer-mediated communication ethics challenge, discussion questions, glossary of terms, and references for further reading. As such, Computer-Mediated Communication is an excellent textbook for courses in computer or technologically mediated communication. John C. Sherblom is a professor emeritus of communication and journalism at the University of Maine. He is past editor of The Journal of Business Communication and of Communication Research Reports. He has published numerous refereed journal articles on computer-mediated communication and interpersonal communication.
