Group communication processes are relatively stable yet influenced by the medium within which they occur—as face-to-face discussions or online Second Life text-based interactions. The medium of the interaction affects the social presence, anonymity, synchronous turn taking, relationship development, and task and social group processes. This paper reviews the literature and examines responses of experienced Second Life group participants in analyzing issues that affect group processes, relational development, and task efficiency when performed face-to-face and through text and voice interactions in Second Life.
