28 views3 pages

Document Summary

Possibility of mediated social interaction, media consumption, and information exchange while the user is in physical motion. May take place through voice, text, picture, video, or otherwise. Devices not necessarily used while on the go, but they at least make it possible to be mobile during mediated social connectivity. Implications for how users relate to space. Time and space no longer rule planning and logistics. Ongoing refinement - change plans or make them up on the fly (directly, while moving about) Mobile communications allow more planning for spontaneous face-to-face encounters. Mobile workers - lower boundaries between work and home may cause stress. Individual addressability through texting and calling tightens flows of core network interaction. Heightened expectations for accessibility (among core ties) Perpetual contact - heightened sense of connection strengthens social bonds. Diversified channels (apps & social media) = more diversified connections fostered through mobile communication (opposite of cocooning)
