The Social Information Processing Theory is probably my favorite of the theory’s we have studied so far.  Why?  Because I’ve experienced this theory at work in my life.  I had no idea what was happening at the time, that I was acting according to a communication technology theory, I just thought I was going to be one of the cool kids with a shiny new toy. Social Information Processing Theory argues that people make decisions about technology they use based upon more than just objective characteristics of the technology such as the speed of feedback, types of channels used, personalness of source and the richness of ... market research, surveys and trends
Facebook and Perceptions of their Privacy Policy
Recent changes to Facebook’s privacy policy have stirred up some controversy, resulting in claims that the social networking site does not really care about the users privacy, and that they are deceptive in how they grant access to their users’ information. This sprang up some compelling questions and I set out to answer them. How knowledgeable are users about Facebook’s privacy policies? What is the perception and perceived transparency of Facebook’s privacy policies? What rights and allowances does Facebook actually have over the personal information users willingly give? In order to find the answers to these ... market research, surveys and trends


Impression Management in Chat Rooms: A Grounded Theory Model ...
This paper investigates impression management and misrepresentation in chat rooms (a form of computer-mediated communication, or CMC) from the vantage point of 10 chat room participants. The grounded theory approach was employed to derive a model firmly rooted in participants' accounts. The resultant model reveals the motivations for engaging in impression management, the strategies used while in the chat rooms, as well as the goals achieved during this process. To illustrate the model, the experience of 1 chat room user is detailed. By producing a set of relationships among concepts, this study represents chat room ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

We reverse and remand for a new trial. On May 24, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

DCCPS: Cancer Control Research
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Improvement in survival rates for children with brain tumors has been achieved by aggressive treatment, leading to concern about the long-term morbidity experienced by survivors. Although global and specific cognitive deficits are well documented for pediatric brain tumor survivors, far less research has been directed toward understanding social and emotional outcomes affecting quality of life. Deficits in social functioning appear to be a significant part of the morbidity experienced by these children, although the extent, basis, and consequences of these deficits remain poorly understood. ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Whats The Information Processing Theory of Dreams? - Yahoo! Answers
I have always thought that it's a theory that dreams are nothing more than processing "undigested" bits of data that are still left in our brains as we fall asleep and organizing them into a "finished" state. Here is another source of information on that term:… I do not agree substantively that dreams are merely the act of processing input or output of data for some non specific reason. I and many others believe that dreams are almost always the efforts of the subconscious (not available to us in our awake state - thus, "sub" (underneath) consciousness) to reveal things to us ...
