      Constantly Connected: Cell Phone Identity
      Interaction Identity
      Updating Identity Tool
      Personal Identity Organizer
    • The cell phone lends itself to constructing one’s identity as oppose to other pieces of technology because it is almost always readily available to its owner.
      Thus Leading To An…
      Interaction Identity
      Cell phones do not have secretaries like in an office setting, and they do not have a wide variety of people who could pick up the phone like in a household setting. When I call someone on their cell phone I expect to hear from them and only them.
    • Interaction Identity
      Virtual World Example…
      Actual World Implications….
      For example if I didn’t know this person’s name I might construct this person’s identity as a male because it is typically a song that a male as oppose to a female would listen to.
      Based on this virtual world interaction, how would I construct this person’s actual world identity?
    • Interaction Identity
      Virtual World Interactions
      “What happens in virtual worlds often is just as real, just as meaningful to participants. Virtual worlds increasingly have “real” ramifications. -Tom Boellstorff
      Actual World Interactions
    • We can decide if we want our phone to illustrate our business self, our at home self, or our vacation self
      Our Phone has evolved into our…
      Personal Identity Symbol
      With the multiple applications available on one’s phone we can make conscious decisions about how we want our cell phones to look, act, and portray our identity to the outside world.
    • Personal Identity Symbol
      (Song from T-Mobile “My Touch” Commercial)
      “You don’t need a phone, you need a phone that gets you”- HTC
      “No matter what you do on an iPhone, there’s an app for that” -Apple
      “Not just a phone, a way of life…”- Blackberry
      “You can make this phone your own, and personalize almost everything about it” -HTC
      Phone companies in their marketing strategies have played a role in depicting a cell phone as a personal identity symbol.
    • Personal Identity Symbol
      Different Features Symbolize Different Identities
      HTC has developed a new phone called the “HTC You” which embodies the concept of the personal identity symbol.
    • Facebook serves as someone’s personal avatar, in the sense that it is your identity portrayed through a virtual spectrum.
      How can one constantly improve oneself?
      By updating your Facebook you are in essence improving or changing the identity of your virtual self.
    • Evolution of your Cell Phone
      Your Cell Phone has now evolved into an updating identity tool!
      By being able to constantly improve/change your virtual identity through the use of your phone, it becomes a significant factor in shaping your identity.
    • Updating Identity Tool
      “What happens in virtual worlds often is just as real, just as meaningful to participants. Virtual worlds increasingly have “real” ramifications.” -Tom Boellstorff
      If your cell phone can be used as a tool to easily update your virtual identity…
      Let’s not forget
      Then your virtual world identity is being represented which must have a connection to your actual world identity.
