Distant Connection: Differences in Prosocial Behavior Across Computing Devices
We demonstrate that prosocial behaviors differ when using a mobile (e.g., laptop) versus stationary (e.g., desktop) device. Across three studies, mobile (stationary) device users exhibit a greater likelihood of helping socially distant (close) others. The physical mobility of computing devices alters perceptions of psychological distance between donors and benefactors.
