Abstract : The field of Computer-mediated communication (CMC) is particularly interested in interpersonal relationships and their development through new communication technologies. We wanted to explore the development of online friendly interpersonal relationships through Event Based Social Network (EBSN, Ricken et al., 2014) with modality switching (from online to in real life, Ramirez, Summer, Fleuriet & Cole, 2015). We have chosen to work on the French EBSN « OnVaSortir » (OVS) which is specialized in the organization of events between individuals. On OVS, for each event, there is two roles among the users : organizer of the event and participant to the event. We have conducted a two parts qualitative study of the users' communication on the EBSN OnVaSortir. On this EBSN, users doesn't seem to use the commentary space to create social links but mainly for the coordination. Impression management doesn't happen much on OVS. The profile seems to be the only way to do so, particularly for participants. As we know that OVS is a way to create relationships (Pharabod, 2017), we need to explore if these people use another online medium to develop interpersonal relationships or if the IRL event is the only way for this population to create social links. These results will be refined through interviews in the near future.
