Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The aspects related with networked interactivity which is considered as an important perspective of computer-mediated communication (CMC) are discussed. Interactivity is indicated as a useful concept for mapping group CMC because it is a hybrid construct. The concept of interactivity directs the focus to the intersection of the psychological and the sociological, the gap between mass and interpersonal communication, and the meeting of mediated and direct communication. Interactivity is found to be the condition of communication in which simultaneous and continuous changes occur, and these exchanges carry a social, binding force.
