  • 1. My-Mobile-SelfPlatform as Identity by @hayleyvfuller
  • 2. image by AngieNan In the past five years, ourunderstanding of mobile has completely changed.
  • 3. In 2007, smartphones were considered a“luxury” by many, with Blackberry leading the pack in popularity. image by yushimoto_02 [christian]
  • 4. Today, however, almost 50%, if not more, of universitystudents have smartphones, and are probably using them during class to boot. image by Philipp Klingerr
  • 5. image by OberazziToday, the question is less "Do you have asmartphone?" as it is"Which smartphone do you have?"
  • 6. In many ways, our understandingof the use of cellphones has gonethrough a paradigm shiftduring the last five years...image by Cuba Gallery
  • 7. ...the most notable of which is perhaps the equation of our smartphones to our identities.image by Maegondo
  • 8. The assumption is that in a university environment,you will likely have a smartphone, but beyondthat... ...your choice of smartphone, and how you use it, says a lot about who you are.image by milk & kisses
  • 9. First, theres the platform issue.Business minded, and need your email? Get a Blackberry. image by Jaz Q6r
  • 10. You want an open approach, and anoverwhelming amount of customization? Go with Android, my friend. image by leolankan
  • 11. And then theres the iPhone - hip, stylish, and consistent. image by apple_vinci
  • 12. In many ways though, our choice of smartphoneplatform goes beyond what functions we want from our phones. image by Zy92
  • 13. Instead, it becomes about what our phones can do for us - yes, function-wise, but more significantly, in the case of our image. image by Rain City Girl
  • 14. Since you are the only person who uses your smartphone on a regular basis, it begins to reflect your personality through customization, even more so than a PC.image by Nas t
  • 15. Additionally, our smartphones are becoming our wallets in more ways than one, and are even more personal.image by PinkBow
  • 16. On a basic level, we have photos on our smartphones, just like in wallets. However, from there, in a smartphone you keep contact information for ALL of your friends, connect with these friends and have a presence on the mobile social web, and can even use your smartphone to pay for transactions - farewell, wallet, we wont be needing you anymore! image by K.J..[image]
  • 17. Not only that, but the sheer amount of apps we have also says something about who we are, and apps are increasingly being developed with the notion of using them to express our identities.image by Daniel
  • 18. Geolocational apps, poised to hit the mainstream in 2011,are all about broadcasting where you are - and thus who youare - to your friends, and can only be accessed by a smartphone. image by MariSheibley
  • 19. Thus, we construct our identities for all to see based on what platform of smartphone we use, but more significantly, what we put on it, and how we use it.image by MadGirl
  • 20. Mobile has moved from on-the-go technology to a socialization platform, where your choice of platform determines your participation in the social web.image by hine
  • 21. As smartphones move to lovemarks, it will be interesting to see how our use of platform as identity shapes how these platforms are developed. image by zebra.paperclip
  • 22. What do you think - what will thenext five years bring in developingour mobile identities?
