Comm Theory - Social Information Processing (SIP)

CMC computer-mediated communication, often referring to text-based messages, which filter out nonverbal cues
social presence theory suggests that CMC deprives users of the sense that another actual person is involved in the interaction
media richness theory purports that CMC band-width is too narrow to convey rich relational messages
cues filtered out interpretation of CMC that regards lack of nonverbal cues as a fatal flaw for using the medium for relational development
impression formation the composite mental image one person forms of another
multimodal using multiple media to maintain a relationship
anticipated future interaction a way of extending psychological time; the likelihood of future interaction motivates CMC users to develop a relationship
chronemics the study of people's systematic handling of time in their interaction with others
hyperpersonal perspective the claim that CMC relationships are often more intimate than those developed when partners are physically together
selective self-presentation an online positive portrayal without fear of contradiction, which enables people to create an overwhelmingly favorable impression
asynchronous channel a nonsimultaneous medium of communication that each individual can use when he or she desires
self-fulfilling prophecy the tendency for a person's expectation of others to evoke a response from them that confirms what was originally anticipated
warranting value reason to believe that information is accurate, typically because the target of the information cannot manipulate it
