Publisher’s Summary

Examining the Concepts, Issues and Implications of Internet Trolling

Discussion

Contributors from a range of fields that includes civil engineering and philosophy, but is rather denser around computer science and education, explore Internet trolling, defined as any form of abuse carried out online for the pleasure of the people causing the abuse or the audience to which they are trying to appeal. They cover social, legal and ethical issues; psychological and wellbeing issues; trust and participation issues in Web 2.0 systems at risk of Internet trolling; and possible solutions for dealing with Internet trolling. Among specific topics are codes of ethics in discussion forums, politeness as a social computing requirement, a survey of trust use and modeling in real online systems, a proposed framework for sustainable communities for knowledge management systems, and a multi-agents system applied on a cyberbullying model for a social network.” – Annotation ©2013 Book News Inc.
