(M.A. Stefanone). Contemporary social networking sites (SNSs) make idealized self-presentation and image maintenance difficult because users’ audiences are becoming more(More)
Effective self-presentation is challenging in the contemporary computer-mediated communication environment due to the abundance of other-provided information. This study compared two approaches, one that focuses on internal factors (the personality approach) and the other environmental factors (the network approach), explaining why individuals engage in(More)
Providing and seeking social support are important aspects of social exchange. New communication technologies, especially social network sites (SNSs), facilitate the process of support exchange. An increasing number of health organizations are using SNSs. However, how they provide and seek social support via SNSs has yet to garner academic attention. This(More)
Pyrazole derivatives (4-6) were directly synthesized from β-pinene derivative nopinone, and they were characterized by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectoscope, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and mass spectrometry. Their optical properties were investigated by ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy and fluorescence spectroscopy. The three compounds(More)
Prior research demonstrates the great potential of social network sites (SNSs) to international students’ cross-cultural adaptation, but fails to explain how specific dimensions of SNS use may be related to crosscultural adaptation. Extending anxiety/uncertainty management (AUM) theory, we added new antecedents about social ties on SNSs distinguished by(More)
Adiponectin, an adipokine with insulin-sensitizing effect, is secreted from adipocytes into circulation as high, medium, and low molecular weight forms (HMW, MMW, and LMW). The HMW adiponectin oligomers possess the most potent insulin-sensitizing activity. WSF-P-1(N-methyl-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexahydro-1,1,5,5-tetramethyl-7H-2,4α-methanonaphthalen-7-amine) is(More)
This study explores the mechanisms by which online social information seeking (i.e., monitoring Facebook friends) relates to social capital. Based on the extant literature, we propose a theoretical framework that includes communication activities across different channels operationalized as offline participation, network structure on social network site(More)
