The use of video conferences has rapidly increased since the last year due to Covid-19 pandemic and the use of tools for video conferences has become a major part in the (professional) lives of many people. Many working environments changed from offline to online and people managed to stay in contact with each other. Furthermore, it was necessary to find an alternative for events where people from different work areas come together and network which is important because previous studies examined how networking results in informational benefits. But how does networking work when there is only individual contact in the virtual environment? There is no known prior study that directly tried to investigate the association between networking and video conferences. Thus, the first aim of this study is to answer this question and the second aim is to examine how this association may also be influenced by other variables. Prior work has already shown that individuals are more likely to turn on their camera if more other members of the video conference do so as well and an investigation about networking has shown that especially anxiety towards unknown people and knowing about the benefits of networking are related to intra- and extraorganizational networking as well as pro- and reactive networking. In the context of the Social Compensation Hypothesis it can be assumed that individuals having issues with networking in the offline environment profit from the online environment of video conferences. Furthermore, it can be assumed that this effect may be even stronger when the establishment of contacts after such a video conference takes also place on social media sites or via e-mails. Therefore, the main assumption of the current project is that showing an active behavior during video conferences as well as contacting others online after a video conference is predicted by the number of other members using the webcam, anxiety towards unknown people, proactive and reactive networking, extraorganizational networking, and knowing the benefits of networking.
