Interpersonal Information Seeking & Monitoring: The Potential for Problematic Social Networking Site Usage

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

While Social Networking Sites (SNS) have facilitated distance communication, they have also equipped stalkers with new channels for the surveillance and harassment. This study explores young adults’ SNS usage to better understand the nature of socially appropriate and inappropriate behavior. Preliminary results indicate that over two-thirds of participants experienced some degree of harassment on SNS and these significantly differed by relationship context (stranger, current, former relations). Likewise, participants self-reported SNS information seeking behaviors more frequently for current relationships than other relationships. Perceptions of the threshold for disturbing SNS behavior also differed by relationship type. Implications for stalking research are discussed.
