On platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, on message
boards, in blogs and commentaries, in short: in the Social
Media, users interact as if they knew each other personally.
Malicious verbal behaviour is found next to clapping and
kissing emoticons, both indicative of users‘ relational work
strategies. This book presents seventeen papers on face work
in Social Media – theoretical reflections as well as
corpus-based studies – thus opening the way to rethink
linguistic pragmatics in computer-mediated communication.
