Abstract

The current study demonstrates that I-sharing promotes social connectedness, a key outcome of mediated interaction. This implies that mobile communication applications, which provide the sense of having the same subjective experience as another person in response to a given stimulus may specifically add value to people’s well-being. The study also adds to the validity of the social connectedness construct, thereby supporting its usefulness for the evaluation and design of mobile communication applications.
