The Handbook of Research on Interactive Information Quality in Expanding Social Network Communications examines the strategic elements involved in ICT training within the context of online networks. Combining scientific, theoretical, and practical perspectives on the importance of communicability in such networks, this book is an essential reference source for researchers, students, teachers, designers, ICT specialists, engineers, and computer programmers interested in social networking technologies.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Automated Software Design
  • Cognitive Models
  • Communicability Expansion
  • Computational Linguistics
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Interface Design

Reviews and Testimonials

The necessity for this book comes from the fact that currently a set of non-democratic elements deriving from the automatic information systems exists in social networks, which may increase the digital gap among the users. In this book, the authors provide the first 360-degree observation of the phenomenon of social networks, intending to increase the quality of communication. This main goal is coupled with a set of scientific, theoretical and practical services. In each of these aspects, the most relevant and avant-garde aspects of the new technologies aimed at the social networks are approached, such as the education and the human and sociological factors.
