Transcript of Chapter 11 Social Information Processing Theory-Deception

Chapter 11:
Social Information Processing Theory Deception:
Face to Face
CMC Stephanie DeBettignies, Derek Heaton,
Jeremy Wollersheim Computer Mediated Communication
(CMC) -Text-based messages, which filter out
most nonverbal cues (138). Hyperpersonal
Perspective The claim that CMC relationships
are often more intimate than those
developed when partners are
physically together (143). Selective self
presentation An online positive portrayal
without fear of contradiction,
which enables people to create
an overwhelmingly favorable
impression (143). Social identity
(SIDE) A theory that suggests CMC
users overestimate their
similarity with others they
meet in online interest groups
(144). Warranting
Value of
Information Reason to believe that information
is accurate, typically because the
target of the information cannot
manipulate it (146). Which do YOU think a
person can be more
deceptive through (face
to face or CMC)? Why?
(Give examples) How are people able to
be more deceptive in
your chosen area? A look at Facebook A crime linked to Facebook is reported to police every 40 minutes.
Last year, officers logged 12,300 alleged offenses involving the vastly popular social networking site.
Facebook was referenced in investigations of murder, rape, child sex offenses, assault, kidnap, death threats, witness intimidation and fraud. (Doyle, 2012) Pedophiles grooming children http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-08-31/cunning-acebook-killer-jailed-for-21-years/4235692 “There are more fake people on profile than there are real people on Instagram.” (Kit, 2012) http://vimeo.com/41583927 Why would F2F be more deceptive? Synchronous media should increase opportunities for deception.
Liars would avoid media that recorded their deceptions
Distributed media (where the interactions are not in physical proximity) also encourage deception
(George, Robb; 2008) CMC Deception Deception is common in everyday communication, accounting for 22-25% of social interactions (George, Robb; 2008).
Both sources from 2008 reported F2F more deceptive than CMC (George, Lewis; 2008).
Believe this will change with time and soon CMC will equal F2F. Example in Film http://www.alluc.org/movies/watch-catfish-2010-online/206877.html

65:45 Face to Face
Deception "...vocal cues to deception have demonstrated how 'response latency', pitch, repetitions, speech errors, speech rate, and frequency of pausing, can all change during lies" (Vrij, 2000, p. 33). Sporer & Schwandt, 2006 AND De-Paulo, 2003, suggest that there is no "significant relationship" between non-verbals and deception. Cues Filtered Out: Interpretation of CMC that regards lack of non-verbal cues as a fatal flaw for using the medium for relationship development.
