9781412849555: Mobile Communication: Bringing Us Together and Tearing Us Apart

Mobile Communication covers a wide range of topics. These include the replacement of co-present interaction with mediated contact and analysis of mobile-based cohesion and gender. The authors also explore the role of media choice and its effect on the quality as well as quantity of social cohesion. Other topics include mobile communication and communities of interest; and mobile communication, cohesion, and youth.

This volume brings together scholars from around the world to consider how mobile communication both builds and destroys our sense of social cohesion. There is no question that uses of technology can lead to increased cohesion within personal communities. For example, this volume includes research on caravan couples in Australia, factory workers in China, young couples in Germany, citizens in Slovenia, and sports clubs in Ireland. It also includes research on drunken calls between university students in the US, calls of international students in Switzerland and communications between immigrant women in Melbourne, Australia.

However, the contributors also argue that as social networks become inundated with mobile communication users, these users may become increasingly isolated and social division can ensue.

About the Author:

Rich Ling is professor at the IT University of Copenhagen and is also a sociologist at Telenor’s research institute near Oslo, Norway. Previously, he was Pohs Visiting Professor of Communication at the University of Michigan. He is the author of New Tech, New Ties: How Mobile Communication is Reshaping Social Cohesion,and The Mobile Connection: The Cell Phone’s Impact on Society.

Review:

"Although perspectives differ on whether the effects of mobile communication are beneficial, these essays make clear that this topic is worthy of investigation. A good addition to communication and mass media collections... Recommended."

—R. Davis, Choice

“An intriguing blend of the impacts of technology on culture, "Mobile Communication" is a fine read, a core addition to any sociology and technology collections, very much recommended reading.”
