This is an introduction to a special issue of JCMC. More details, questions, and critics will be added as hyperlinks of each point after reading. 😄

Main Point

  • Why ask: ubiquitous computer, why CMC?

The Enduring Processes

  • A focus on the mediated process (Caleb Carr), and the underlying phenomena (Andrew Flanagin) 🔗 Notes
    • Typological cues in CMC (Kun Xu and Tony Liao)
    • Communication visibility (Jeffery Treem, Paul Leonardi, and Bart van den Hoof)

Beyond Human Com. and Individual-Level

  • Technologies → various social, psychological, and communicative phenomena

AI

  • Psyco impacts (Shyam Sundar)
  • AI-Mediated-Communication (Jeff Hancock, Mor Naaman, and Karien Levy): “modified, augmented, or even generated by a computational agent to achieve communication goals.”

Mobile

  • An entire system & “sociality”(Scott Campbell)

Social Media and a networked society

  • From web 2.0 UGC to now, network techniques
  • Jiawei Sophia Fu and Chih-Hui Lai

Questions

  • Bibliometric analysis?
  • Jiawei Sophia Fu and Chih-Hui Lai:
    • Clusters tightly connected & far removed from others
    • Unique theoretical frameworks or methods

Interdisciplinary Influences and Boundaries of CMC

  • Should define boundary
  • Important to know interdisciplinary and evolving nature.

Critics

  1. Although a focus on the process is a good idea, may be “computation-mediated” is better.
    1. Computation, prevent attention distracted by the“computer”
    2. Mediated, same to the article, process
