Abstract
Traditionally it is widely acknowledged that there are gender differences in using language. Nowadays with the development of network, computer as a communication medium has attracted users around the world due to its convenience and efficiency. The problem is proposed whether gender differences in the real-world communication exist in the computer-mediated communication. Through analyzing exchanging messages from QQ, it is found that the gender-specific communication does exist in computer-mediated communication. And then reasons are explored for the existence of the phenomenon.
