Formatted abstract
There is a dearth of research focusing on developmental changes in computer-mediated communication groups. In this study, developmental patterns in 14 informal groups on computer-mediated networks were analyzed using the Group Development Observation System. Results indicated marked similarity between the patterns found with the CMC groups in this study and those reported in the literature on face-to-face groups. The findings were in agreement with recent longitudinal research that has noted similarities in the two types of group communication over time.
