The rapid evolution of technology continuously changes the way people interact, work, and learn. By examining these advances from a sociological perspective, researchers can further understand the impact of cyberspace on human behavior, interaction, and cognition. This title provides emerging research exploring the four types of cyber behavior, expanding the scientific knowledge about the subject matter and revealing its extreme complexity. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as cyber effects, emotion recognition, and cyber victimization, this book is ideally designed for sociologists, psychologists, academicians, researchers, and graduate-level students seeking current research on how people behave online.
