Reference[edit]

There is a big literature on this topic, both in psychology and sociology. I added one basic sociological reference.

Related to Hawthorne studies?[edit]

I've been updating the Hawthorne effect and got to the bank wiring studies, where the researchers studied how a group of workers interacted. See http://www.analytictech.com/mb021/Hawthorne.html and http://www.analytictech.com/mb021/handouts/bank_wiring.htm for more info. Shouldn't this study be referenced in this article?

I'm removing a promotional link to http://groopik.com -- not closely related to this article on social psychology. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Danielsteinbock (talkcontribs) 08:28, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Group size?[edit]

The article says "Small-group communication refers to the nature of communication that occurs in groups that are between 3 and 7 individuals.". However, I'm currently taking a class on small group communication, and our textbook uses 3-17 (I would need to double check that, though) as the size for a small group. Also, according to the instructor, some sources use(d) a size of up to 20 for a small group. When I can, I'll cite my book for its size, but I'm thinking that if everyone with a book on the subject checked, they would have a different maximum size for a small group.

Things to Do[edit]

Things that I would like to add to or see in this article at some point:

  • Different types of small groups (primary, secondary, problem-solving, decision-making, study, therapy, committees, quality circles, focus groups)
  • Virtual Small Groups

Duplicated Articles?[edit]

Section 3, Group Communication is an exact copy of section 1; this should be fixed.

Interested in improving this article?[edit]

I would like to see this article improved. It's been a decade since any edits were made. I especially like the suggestion of adding material on virtual small groups. Who else is interested in working on this article? AnaSoc (talk) 01:09, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
