The articles, however, vary in their;definitions and uses of CMC. Butler, and Kraut (2002) suggest that face-to-face (FtF);interactions are more effective than CMC, defined and used as email, in creating;feelings of closeness or intimacy. Other articles define CMC differently and, therefore;offer different results. This paper examines Cummings et al.s research in relation to;three other research articles to suggest that all forms of CMC should be studied in order;to fully understand how CMC influences online and offline relationships.;The word;Abstract;should be;centered;and typed;in 12 point;Times New;Roman.

However, contradictory results are suggested within this;research mostly because only certain aspects of CMC are investigated, for example, email;only. Cummings, Butler, and Kraut (2002) suggest that FtF interactions are more;effective than CMC (read: email) in creating feelings of closeness or intimacy, while;other studies suggest the opposite. In order to understand how both online (Internet) and;offline (non-Internet) relationships are affected by CMC, all forms of CMC should be;studied. This paper examines Cummings et al.s research against other CMC research to;propose that additional research be conducted to better understand how online;communication effects relationships.;In-text;citations;include the;authors/;authors;name/s and;the;publication;year.;The;publication;year and;the not;page;number is;used;because;APA users;are;concerned;with the;date of the;article (the;more;current the;better).;In Cummings et al.s (2002) summary article reviewing three empirical studies on;online social relationships, it was found that CMC, especially email, was less effective;than FtF contact in creating and maintaining close social relationships. Two of the three;reviewed studies focusing on communication in non-Internet and Internet relationships;mediated by FtF, phone, or email modalities found that the frequency of each modalitys;use was significantly linked to the strength of the particular relationship (Cummings et;al., 2002). The strength of the relationship was predicted best by FtF and phone;communication, as participants rated email as an inferior means of maintaining personal;relationships as compared to FtF and phone contacts (Cummings et al., 2002).;If an article;has three;to five;authors;write out all;of the;authors;names the;first time;they;appear.;Then use;the first;authors;last name;followed by;et al.;VARYING DEFINITIONS OF ONLINE COMMUNICATION;4;Cummings et al. (2002) reviewed an additional study conducted in 1999 by the;HomeNet project. In this project, Kraut, Mukhopadhyay, Szczypula, Kiesler, and Scherlis;(1999) compared the value of using CMC and non-CMC to maintain relationships with;partners. They found that participants corresponded less frequently with their Internet;partner (5.2 times per month) than with their non-Internet partner (7.2 times per month);(as cited in Cummings et al., 2002). This difference does not seem significant, as it is;only two times less per month. However, in additional self-report surveys, participants;responded feeling more distant, or less intimate, towards their Internet partner than their;non-Internet partner. This finding may be attributed to participants beliefs that email is;an inferior mode of personal relationship communication.;Intimacy is necessary in the creation and maintenance of relationships, as it is;defined as the sharing of a persons innermost being with another person, i.e., selfdisclosure (Hu, Wood, Smith, & Westbrook, 2004). Relationships are facilitated by the;reciprocal self-disclosing between partners, regardless of non-CMC or CMC. Cummings;et al.s (2002) reviewed results contradict other studies that research the connection;between intimacy and relationships through CMC.;Hu et al. (2004) studied the relationship between the frequency of Instant;Messenger (IM) use and the degree of perceived intimacy among friends. The use of IM;instead of email as a CMC modality was studied because IM supports a non-professional;environment favoring intimate exchanges (Hu et al., 2004). Their results suggest that a;positive relationship exists between the frequency of IM use and intimacy, demonstrating;Use two;spaces;after a;period;throughout;your paper.;VARYING DEFINITIONS OF ONLINE COMMUNICATION;5;that participants feel closer to their Internet partner as time progresses through this CMC;modality.;Similarly, Underwood and Findlay (2004) studied the effect of Internet;relationships on primary, specifically non-Internet relationships and the perceived;intimacy of both. In this study, self-disclosure, or intimacy, was measured in terms of;shared secrets through the discussion of personal problems. Participants reported a;significantly higher level of self-disclosure in their Internet relationship as compared to;their primary relationship. In contrast, the participants primary relationships were;reported as highly self-disclosed in the past, but the current level of disclosure was;perceived to be lower (Underwood & Findlay, 2004). This result suggests participants;turned to the Internet in order to fulfill the need for intimacy in their lives.;In further support of this finding, Tidwell and Walther (2002) hypothesized CMC;participants employ deeper self-disclosures than FtF participants in order to overcome the;limitations of CMC, e.g., the reliance on nonverbal cues. It was found that CMC partners;engaged in more frequent intimate questions and disclosures than FtF partners in order to;overcome the barriers of CMC. In their study, Tidwell and Walther (2002) measured the;perception of a relationships intimacy by the partner of each participant in both the CMC;and FtF conditions. The researchers found that the participants partners stated their;CMC partner was more effective in employing more intimate exchanges than their FtF;partner, and both participants and their partners rated their CMC relationship as more;intimate than their FtF relationship.;VARYING DEFINITIONS OF ONLINE COMMUNICATION;A Level 2;heading;should be;flush left;and bolded.;If you use;more than;two levels;of;headings;consult;section;3.02 of the;APA manual;(6th ed.) or;the OWL;resource on;APA;headings;http://owl.;english.pur;due.edu/ow;l/resource/;560/16/;6;Discussion;In 2002, Cummings et al. stated that the evidence from their research conflicted;with other data examining the effectiveness of online social relationships. This statement;is supported by the aforementioned discussion of other research. There may be a few;possible theoretical explanations for these discrepancies. First, one reviewed study by;Cummings et al. (2002) examined only email correspondence for their CMC modality.;Therefore, the study is limited to only one mode of communication among other;alternatives, e.g., IM as studied by Hu et al. (2004). Because of its many personalized;features, IM provides more personal CMC. For example, it is in real time without delay;voice-chat and video features are available for many IM programs, and text boxes can be;personalized with the users picture, favorite colors and text, and a wide variety of;Because all;research;has its;limitations;it is;important;to discuss;the;limitations;of articles;under;examination.;emoticons, e.g.,:). These options allow for both an increase in self-expression and the;ability to overcompensate for the barriers of CMC through customizable features, as;stated in Tidwell and Walther (2002). Self-disclosure and intimacy may result from IMs;individualized features, which are not as personalized in email correspondence.;In addition to the limitations of email, Cummings et al. (2002) reviewed studies;that focused on international bank employees and college students. It is possible the;participants CMC through email was used primarily for business, professional, and;school matters and not for relationship creation or maintenance. In this case, personal;self-disclosure and intimacy levels are expected to be lower for non-relationship;interactions, as this communication is primarily between boss and employee or student;VARYING DEFINITIONS OF ONLINE COMMUNICATION;7;and professor. Intimacy is not required, or even desired, for these professional;relationships.;Instead of professional correspondence, however, Cummings et al.s (2002);review of the HomeNet project focused on already established relationships and CMCs;effect on relationship maintenance. The HomeNet researchers sole dependence on email;communication as CMC may have contributed to the lower levels of intimacy and;closeness among Internet relationships as compared to non-Internet relationships (as cited;in Cummings et al., 2002). The barriers of non-personal communication in email could;be a factor in this project, and this could lead to less intimacy among these Internet;partners. If alternate modalities of CMC were studied in both already established and;professional relationships, perhaps these results would have resembled those of the;previously mentioned research.;In order to gain a complete understanding of CMCs true effect on both online;and offline relationships, it is necessary to conduct a study that examines all aspects of;CMC. This includes, but is not limited to, email, IM, voice-chat, video-chat, online;journals and diaries, online social groups with message boards, and chat rooms. The;effects on relationships of each modality may be different, and this is demonstrated by;the discrepancies in intimacy between email and IM correspondence. As each mode of;communication becomes more prevalent in individuals lives, it is important to examine;the impact of all modes of CMC on online and offline relationship formation;maintenance, and even termination.;The;conclusion;restates;the;problem;the paper;addresses;and can;offer areas;for further;research.;See the;OWL;resource on;conclusions;http://owl.;english.pur;due.edu/ow;l/resource/;724/04/;VARYING DEFINITIONS OF ONLINE COMMUNICATION;Start the;reference;list on a;new page;center the;title;References, and;alphabetize;the entries.;Do not;underline or;italicize the;title.;Doublespace all;entries.;Every;article;mentioned;in the;paper;should have;an entry.;8;References;Cummings, J.
