1. Hidaka, Masaki . ""The less you know the more you chat: General political knowledge as a predictor of online chat room use"" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Association For Public Opinion Association, Fontainebleau Resort, Miami Beach, FL, <Not Available>. 2018-11-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p16963_index.html>
Publication Type: Paper/Poster Proposal
Abstract: A recent PEW Internet survey found that 16% of those respondents with Internet access went online to be part of chat rooms and other online discussions. An earlier report also issued by PEW found that of those who went to chat rooms and participated in online communities, many did so to find other individuals with shared interests or to discuss their feelings about significant events such as 9/11 or personal health scares.

Yet personal interest, health concerns and significant events are not the only predictors of chat room use. Using survey responses from a representative sample of Internet users (The Electronic Dialogue 2000 Project from the Annenberg School at the University of Pennsylvania), this research found that after controlling for issues of personal interest and variables such as media use, low levels of general political knowledge predicted higher levels of online chat room use.

This paper will attempt to illustrate this relationship using quantitative analysis and will investigate reasons as to why lower levels of general political knowledge are associated with chat room use.

Can a Chat Room be a Real Community?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Aug 11, 2006 Online <PDF>. 2018-11-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p104260_index.html>

Abstract: Researchers assert that communities are emerging over computer-mediated communication in various Internet formats such as interactive chat rooms (Blanchard and Horan, 1998). In chat rooms, people type each other messages in real-time or read others' conversations as they are occurring. I have chosen to study a trauma/abuse survivors chat room because this chat room seems to have more longevity and continuity in its membership than other chat rooms I visited.
Through this research I seek to understand relationship building and the establishment and modes of function of a chat room community. Additionally, my goal is to explore how “community” is defined and maintained in this virtual setting.

Abstract: Erving Goffman’s (1959, 1967) theoretical framework and concept of face-work has the potential to greatly increase the understanding of interpersonal dynamics in computer-mediated communication realms. This research used the concept of face-work to analyze the transcripts of two interactions between a librarian and a library user in a Web-based virtual reference service (VRS) environment. These highly goal-oriented interactions, even though lacking the immediacy of face-to-face interaction, were found to be rich sources of face-work.

Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: In this paper we demonstrate that family conversation and conformity orientation and parental hostility are correlated with core psychological adjustment variables (including anxiety, depression, self-esteem) and important behavioral outcomes for adolescents (including eating disorders; alcohol, smoking, and drug use, and sexual risk taking). Methodology and results are discussed as are implications for families and the field of family communication research. Future studies are also proposed.
