 Results & Outcomes
Introduction

These findings could be further compared with a time line of specific events which took place during the period of study (Dec 2007-09), in relation to key authors’ 留学生论文网involvement.

4-1 Findings of Communication Activity Statistics
In this section, Internet forum users’ communication activities have been initially explored based on Findings of their recorded communication statistics in each forum. These statistics include numbers of their postings (i.e. articles and replies), lengths of these postings by words, their access time and frequency, numbers of replies they obtained from other users, etc. These statistics forms the basic understanding of how people initiate, conduct, and respond to communication activities in fora. Findings from the descriptive statistics of these communication activities in Fora will be discussed as follows.

4-1-1 Statistics of posted contents in Internet fora

This study pays keen attention to the message / opinion exchanges online; and it regards active interactions in Internet fora, including posting, forwarding, and replying articles, as indicators of communication activities. Though the mechanisms of these four fora accept multimedia and other types of rich-texts in the forum, the major medium of information exchange on these fora during the research period is still text. Table 4-1 shows the overall statistics of posting contents by each sampling forum. A major proportion of these contents are text-based posting articles and replies, indicating interactions that emerged in these fora are mainly through text-based posting articles and replies / comments. The rich-content of multimedia only appear in no more than 4% of contents, while images of figures (as content in postings) also appear in only 8% numbers of postings.

Despite different attributions of these four fora as revealed in Analysis Sector 1, the four fora show some similar attributions in the descriptive statistics. The total posting (including articles or replies) scale of numbers during the data collection period is relevantly similar while they have quite different member scale as shown above. The following sections present several collected statistics calculating Internet for a users’ communication activities. These descriptive statistics present the results of observing these Internet fora based on existing record.
