Abstract

This paper describes the selection of media in emotional communications by Japanese college students, especially as they reveal gender differences. Sad and joy situations were prepared and participants could select from face-to-face (F2F), telephone, mobile phone email, PC email and letter as the means of communication. Familiarity with the recipient was used as a factor of communication. The main findings were the followings. To a familiar partner, participants tended to choose media based on an quick reply, sharing joy or sympathy at the time of communication. These decisions can be regarded as the emotional strategy in media selection. Participants wanted to convey their emotion to a familiar partner as soon as possible and as accurately as possible. On the other hand, it seemed that sharing of emotions was not desired to a unfamiliar recipient.
