Tidwell, Lisa Collins; Walther, Joseph B.
Human Communication Research, v28 n3 p317-48 Jul 2002
Examines how computer-mediated communication partners (undergraduate students) exchange personal information in initial interactions, focusing on the effects of communication channels on self-disclosure, question-asking, and uncertainty reduction. Illuminates some microstructures previously asserted but unverified within social information processing theory, and extends uncertainty reduction theory. (SG)
