Abstract

Two experiments were conducted that independently examined the effects of communication media upon self-disclosure and deceptive behaviors. Results of experiment I indicated that subjects engaged in a greater volume of self-disclosure in the face-to-face condition than in the computer messaging condition, with an intermediate amount disclosed in the telephone condition. Experiment II results indicated that subjects' willingness to engage in deceptive behaviors did not vary much between communication conditions. Subjects were more willing to present themselves in an exaggerated positive light when engaged in face-to-face interaction and more willing to portray themselves in an exaggerated negative manner while being interviewed over a computer messaging system.
