Book Description

12 April 2007 0198568002 978-0198568001 1
Over one billion people use the Internet globally. Psychologists are beginning to understand what people do online, and the impact being online has on behaviour. It's making us re-think many of our existing assumptions about what it means to be a social being. For instance, if we can talk, flirt, meet people and fall in love online, this challenges many of psychology's theories that intimacy or understanding requires physical co-presence. "The Oxford Handbook of Internet Psychology" brings together many of the leading researchers in what can be termed 'Internet Psychology'. Though a very new area of research, it is growing at a phenomenal pace. In addition to well-studied areas of investigation, such as social identity theory, computer-mediated communication and virtual communities, the volume also includes chapters on topics as diverse as deception and misrepresentation, attitude change and persuasion online, Internet addiction, online relationships, privacy and trust, health and leisure use of the Internet, and the nature of interactivity. With over 30 chapters written by experts in the field, the range and depth of coverage is unequalled, and serves to define this emerging area of research. Uniquely, this content is supported by an entire section covering the use of the Internet as a research tool, including qualitative and quantitative methods, online survey design, personality testing, ethics, and technological and design issues. While it is likely to be a popular research resource to be 'dipped into', as a whole volume it is coherent and compelling enough to act as a single text book. "The Oxford Handbook of Internet Psychology" is the definitive text on this burgeoning field. It will be an essential resource for anyone interested in the psychological aspects of Internet use, or planning to conduct research using the 'net'.

I had to read chapters from this book for my class. Great insight into online and social identity, why people join online communities and how we form our identity online. If you are interested in the psychology behind the Internet you will like this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars researcher__ 4 May 2012

I must mention I haven't finish this book yet. So my review shortsighted.

This book offers various articles that cover almost all asepcts of the field of the internet psychology researches.

Having gone through several chapters, however, I haven't found something new to me.

So readers should not expect this book to be an inspiring book that leads you to new research items. Instead, this book may give you enough background knowledge that make you informed enough about the field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Promised and Delivered 6 Aug 2011

I was pressed for time in receiving this book in time for a course that was to start the following week. I was told the amount of days it would take for me to receive the item I requested. It was definitely delivered in that time frame and the book was new and packaged securely. I will definitely order again instead of paying the high cost my university charges in their book store. A customer for life, great service!!!
