Advance praise: 'As one of the original cyberpsychology researchers, Patricia Wallace provides an excellent exploration of a wide range of issues concerning how we experience cyberspace and how it affects our lives. She offers insights into not just the psychology of online identity, interpersonal relationships, and group dynamics, but also into the essence of human nature. Anyone interested in the Internet will appreciate her comprehensive knowledge of the fascinating role this new realm plays in the history of psychology.' John Suler, Rider University
Advance praise: 'Whether you're an experienced IT user, a Facebook fan, an online shopper, a researcher, or simply someone who wants to know more about the Internet, this book is a must-read. Like the 1999 first edition, it is engagingly written and carefully documented. Much of what the second edition discusses, however - smartphones, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, viral videos, phishing, online privacy and surveillance, growing up online, and more - came about or morphed in the twenty-first century. The Psychology of the Internet offers a fascinating account of how the Internet affects all who use it and how we, in turn, can help to shape its future.' Joan Korenman, Professor Emerita of English, and Founder, Center for Women and Information Technology, University of Maryland, Baltimore County
