Self online: personality and demographic implications
Internet -- Psychological aspects
Psychology and the Internet provides the first resource for examining how the Internet affects our definition of who we are and our communication and work patterns. It also examines how normal behavior differs from the pathological with respect to Internet use. The book contains three sections: the first section covers the "self" in relation to the Internet; the second section explores how the Internet is used to meet new friends and love interests, as well as to conduct business; and the final section examines the philosophical ramifications of Internet use and our definitions of reality and consciousness.
