slide9

The architects of a virtual space — from the software designers to the site administrators — shape the community in a more profound way than do their real-world counterpart. People eat, sleep, and work in buildings; the buildings affect how happily they do these things. But the buildings do not completely control their perception of the world. In the electronic domain, the design of the environment is everything.

meaning through contradiction
Meaning through Contradiction?
  • When individuals act in a way that is inconsistent with expected behavior, several things happen (for the ‘performer’ and the ‘audience’). How might this occur in a CMC environment such as IM, email, etc?

Computer-Mediated Communication — Cheshire & Fiore

expressions given and given off
Expressions Given and Given Off

Goffman’s idea of expressions ‘given’ and ‘given off’ can be applied to many forms of interaction… what are some issues with the two forms of expression in various forms of CMC?

Computer-Mediated Communication — Cheshire & Fiore

social order through interaction
Social Order through Interaction?

Goffman argues that social order can be an outcome of our interactions– what does this mean?

What are some examples of how this might occur (in CMC or in any other situations)?

Computer-Mediated Communication — Cheshire & Fiore

signaling
Signaling
  • Conventional vs. assessment signals — a reasonable distinction?
    • How else can we describe/classify signals?
  • How do people send and receive them?
    • At a bar, on IM, in online dating?

Computer-Mediated Communication — Cheshire & Fiore

what is deception
What is “deception”?

How can we resolve the tension between “playful” and “literal” use of CMC?

Computer-Mediated Communication — Cheshire & Fiore

slide16
True?

But the buildings do not completely control their perception of the world.

In the electronic domain, the design of the environment iseverything.
