Paper: Self-Disclosure via Mobile Messaging
Influence Strategies and Social Responses to Communication Technologies
This paper presents a study that examines SRCT in the context of ubiquitous computing. Social responses to communication technologies theory (SRCT) says that people tend to treat computers as social actors by mindlessly applying social rules. Little work has evaluated this theory in ubiquitous computing. This work tests SRCT for the first time in the context of self-disclosure via messaging on mobile phones.
