His analysis draws heavily upon what is already known about the psychological effects of other forms of technologically mediated communication, such as telephones, telegraphs, and ham radio. A sampling of topics includes the development of romantic relationships on the Internet, the benefits of belonging to virtual communities, and the effect of Internet use on mental health.Copyright © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR --This text refers to the

Book Description
The Internet is transforming business, education, and maybe even ourselves. In this timely and unique text, Adam Joinson provides a clear, engaging and lively summary of the psychology of the Internet, while at the same time drawing lessons from previous technologies as diverse as the early telephone, telegraph, and even radio hams. Mixing anecdote with findings from psychological studies, this book provides a clear, compelling and insightful vision of the psychology of the Internet, and the implications for the design of future technologies.
