Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] Mobile and computer-mediated forms of communication (CMC) - from email, instant messaging, to blogs, to social networking sites - are now well integrated practices in everyday life for the management of interpersonal relationships and the construction of own identity (Livingstone, 2008: 394). Mobile and online communication technologies extend interactions beyond the context of physical coexistence, generating a "full time" and "anywhere" communication environment that precedes, accompanies, and prolongs the face-to-face meeting. This essay explores the communicative practices that characterize the sociality of adolescents and young people, and that contribute to defining the configuration of social ties as "multimedia relations" (Baym et al., 2004).
