Overview

Immersed in Media: Telepresence in Everyday Life highlights the growth and importance of the concept of telepresence within the field of mass communication, highlighting the importance of telepresence and considering popular media types and their effects on users. The extent to which media users feel "in" a media environment (spatial presence) or "with" mediated others (social presence) has significant implications.


This volume explains how the experience of presence can be affected by several popular media technologies (such as television, video games, film, computers, the Internet). It also discusses how presence experience mediates or moderates commonly studied media effects (e.g. enjoyment, persuasion, aggression). These discussions are followed by chapters analyzing the current state of presence research and its future. Ultimately, this text will establish the necessity of telepresence to gaining a complete understanding of the uses and effects of popular media technologies
