Drexel

Work and personal environments
One of the biggest challenges of teams is cross-cultural communications, yet HCI research has a real western bias.

2 Studies are there any cultural differences on
- trust in blogs by revealing personal information
- corporate blogs: contents and management styles

Study 1
- national culture effect vs. virtual community effect
- what is trust? They defined it as willingness to reveal self-reported personal information
- Hypothesis: bloggers in the US will reveal more personal information than bloggers from Korea and China.
- Held constant the blog site because some sites have their own culture
- Cultural characteristics of the site interface, available fields in user profile, and sample of user profiles (mapping of Hofstedā€™s matrix)

Study 2
- why do people blog in corporations
- do people from different countries but in the same corporation blog differently?
- Cohen (2005) reasons to blog in corporate environment (establish expertise, create alternative media, extend corporate communications, build community)
- Looked at google us and google china blogs

Overview
- big cultural differences in personal blogs, little cultural differences in corporate blogs
