One such impact has been the transformation of computer-mediated-communication (CMC) into social networking.

By exploring both the meanings associated with CMC and social networks, and the relationship of CMC to culture, the goal of this text is to provide students with methods to better understand the socially-oriented world in which they live and to understand the characteristics that make social networks successful. Special features including terms, examples, CMC theory, and suggestions for student exercises.
