          Abstract

          Emotishare is a web and mobile platform for users to continuously track, share and respond to the emotional states of their friends. The system was trialled with both large and small groups to explore emotional communication. The groups were provided with two alternate interfaces to the system (web and mobile), and usage was compared in order to determine the effectiveness of each interface in supporting emotional communication. While overall usage behaviour was unaffected across both systems, the results highlighted that the mobile system was better suited to encouraging ad-hoc emotional tracking, sharing and response behaviour.

          Varieties of groups and the perception of group entitativity.

          Three studies examined perceptions of the entitativity of groups. In Study 1 (U.S.) and Study 2 (Poland), participants rated a sample of 40 groups on 8 properties of groups (e.g., size, duration, group member similarity) and perceived entitativity. Participants also completed a sorting task in which they sorted the groups according to their subjective perceptions of group similarity. Correlational and regression analyses were used to determine the group properties most strongly related to entitativity. Clustering and multidimensional scaling analyses in both studies identified 4 general types of groups (intimacy groups, task groups, social categories, and loose associations). In Study 3, participants rated the properties of groups to which they personally belonged. Study 3 replicated the results of Studies 1 and 2 and demonstrated that participants most strongly valued membership in groups that were perceived as high in entitativity.

              The nonverbal communication functions of emoticons in computer-mediated communication.

               Shao-Kang Lo (2008)
              Most past studies assume that computer-mediated communication (CMC) lacks nonverbal communication cues. However, Internet users have devised and learned to use emoticons to assist their communications. This study examined emoticons as a communication tool that, although presented as verbal cues, perform nonverbal communication functions. We therefore termed emoticons quasi-nonverbal cues.
