Investigations Into Differences Between Social- and Cyberostracism

Investigations Into Differences Between Social- and Cyberostracism This article presents 4 studies examining the impact of being ignored and excluded via computer-mediated communication (CMC). The focus is the differences between social- and cyberostracism. Study 1 replicated cyberostracism experiment, which showed negative consequences of being ostracized in a virtual ball toss game. Studies 2 and 3 examined ostracism in a chat room environment, again showing negative consequences of ostracism, even when compared with negatively charged inclusion. Study 4 directly compared responses to CMC with face-to-face (or social) ostracism. Results suggest that whereas both modes of ostracism are aversive, aspects of CMC provide targets with “virtual bravado” that might buffer negative effects of cyberostracism. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Group Dynamics: Theory, Research, and Practice PsycARTICLES®
