A Psychosocial Comparison of Computer-Mediated and Face-to-Face Language Use among Severely Disturbed Adolescents.
Zimmerman, D. Patrick
Adolescence, v22 n88 p827-40 Win 1987
Analyzed communication among severely disturbed adolescents, recording interactions from computer-based "conferences" and small group face-to-face sessions, to determine differences in indications of psychological state, interpersonal interest, and expressive style. Content analysis revealed that computer-mediated communication was more, and more positively, expressive of feelings and object relations, mentioned interpersonal issues more frequently, and diminished gender differences.
