Hyperpersonal Model

posted 10 Jan 2011, 17:38 by Jess Maher
Hyperpersonal Model is an interpersonal communication theory that suggests that computer mediated communication can become hyperpersonal because it affords message senders a host of communicative advantages over traditional face-to-face interaction. Compared to ordinary face-to-face situations, a hyperpersonal message sender has a greater ability to strategically develop and edit self-presentation, enabling a selective and optimized presentation of one's self to others.
