Patterns of use
Barking Market at Dagenham Market
I’ve been down in London visiting family. I noticed that Emma and Sammy use mobile conversations to co-ordinate social arrangements and the net to get information. Ruth and Hannah, who are younger, use SMS much more and overlay this with MSN chat. Ruth’s probably the most connected, using MySpace to check for updates, MSN to maintain presence, SMS and mobile conversations for more precise co-ordination and YouTube for entertainment.
