Resumen

Recientes estudios sugieren que el aumento del uso de las TIC y en especial de redes sociales parece estar relacionado con un mayor riesgo de exposición a fenómenos de intimidación en el ciberespacio. El ciber-rumor y el cybergossip son algunos de estos riesgos de gran relevancia en el estudio de la ciberconducta, pues modulan los procesos emocionales y actitudinales que pueden afectar negativamente al bienestar psicológico, así como al contexto social inmediato. Este documento presenta una revisión y reflexión general sobre el avance en el cuerpo teórico del cybergossip, delimita el constructo en comparación con el ciber-rumor y el cyberbullying, presenta un estudio realizado en Colombia desde una perspectiva cross-cultural y ofrece posibles líneas de trabajo futuras desde las ciencias sociales computacionales. Las conclusiones son útiles para los diversos estudios que abordan el estudio de la ciberconducta, particularmente desde la multidisciplinariedad y las ciencias sociales computacionales.
