Types of Online Deception
Rowe, Neil C.
MetadataShow full item record
Deception in virtual communities can be a serious issue. We present three approaches to characterizing online deception: by the appearance, by the motivation, and by the mechanism. Appearances include identity deception, mimicking, lying (by insincere statements, false excuses, or false promises), and fraud. Motivations can be both aggressive and defensive. Mechanisms are analyzed using concepts from case grammar in linguistics. Fundamentally new forms of deception not in these taxonomies are unlikely in virtual communities.
