There is a form of online body language. I call it "e-body language" and have written a book on it: 'Understanding E-Body Language: Building Trust Online'.

Understanding Body Language at Work is Hard
Prapagool Chiramakara, Director, Thailand, Member
I found that in the workplace people use very complicated styles in communication and it took me a very long time to observe & (really) understand.
To learn about people styles at work can help but not much in real life.

Body Language / Personas / Hand Gestures
Johan Bergstroem, HR Consultant, Sweden, Member
Big topic - there are many gestures you can use. Also people have different "personas" depending on where they are and who they are with.
Many gestures are cultural, so its perhaps best not to use them in an international context.
The angle of the chin, the eye contact, the shoulders, standing straight or as a sack of potatoes.
The hands can form different power symbols and can be used to underline points in spoken language.
In the western world, I suppose many hand gestures are derivatives of the (christian) priesthood's holy gestures?
