The Formation of Group Norms in Computer-Mediated Communication.
Postmes, Tom; Spears, Russell; Lea, Martin
Human Communication Research, v26 n3 p341-71 Jul 2000
Examines the formation of group norms in computer-mediated communication (CMC) among students who used e-mail as part of a course. Shows that norms prescribing a particular use of technology are socially constructed over time at the level of locally defined groups, and also shows that the influence of these norms is limited to the boundaries of the group.
