Summary

Social Interaction and Technology explores how technology mediates social interaction.The focal point of analysis and discussion is online communication. Using conversation analysis and ethnomethodology, the book identifies and explicates key social and interactional issues in voice-based and text-based chat rooms, emails, social networking websites, and mobile telephony. Facebook, Youtube, FaceTime, and other popular forms of communication are also discussed. Divided into three sections - survey, analysis, application -- this is an ideal resource for postgraduate students of computer-mediated communication (CMC) or applied linguistics.
