Based on two decades of participant-observation field research in diverse online environments, this engaging book offers insights for improving lifestyles and enhancing wellbeing in the digital age. John R. Suler, a founder of the field of cyberpsychology, explains its fundamental principles across a wide variety of topics, including online identity management, disinhibition, communication via text and photographs, intimacy and misunderstandings in online relationships, conflicting attitudes toward social media, addiction, deviant behavior, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and media overload. He provides a new framework, the 'Eight Dimensions of Cyberpsychology Architecture', which researchers, students, and general readers interested in cyberpsychology can apply as a valuable tool for creating and understanding different digital realms. Psychology of the Digital Age focuses on the individual, shedding new light on our conscious as well as subconscious reactions to online experiences and our intrinsic human need to self-actualize.

'John Suler's long anticipated follow-up to his groundbreaking The Psychology of Cyberspace is finally here - and it's well worth the wait. Exploring what it means to be human in this digital age, Suler smartly captures the challenges facing us as we integrate and translate our analog lives - and even our relationships - into digital. This is thought-provoking reading, setting a new standard as the reference for exploring and understanding our complex, ever-evolving interactions with technology.' John M.

'In Psychology of the Digital Age, Suler profoundly reviews cyberpsychology and provides thoughtful understanding of emerging human nature in the context of innovative social technologies, while suggesting interesting psychodynamic views on contemporary psychology. In a creative way, [he] offers a unique and fresh look at the psychological dynamics of numerous behavioral and emotional phenomena characterizing digitally immersed individuals, virtual social environments, and psychological interventions enabled online.'
