Time Optimization

  1. 1. TIME OPTIMIZATION SMS communication <ul><li>Presentation about time value in usage of </li></ul><ul><li>Pre-Paid System </li></ul>
  2. 2. TIME OPTIMIZATION <ul><li>Micro-coordinating daily activities by SMS : </li></ul><ul><li>With family= functional messages through which family activities are organized, teens ask their parents to stay longer in a certain place, teens announce their parents where they are and with who. SMS is preferred in these situations because it functions as a safety-net for teens, in the way that they do not confront a direct rejection of their demand from parents’ side. </li></ul>
  3. 3. TIME OPTIMIZATION <ul><li>Micro-coordinating daily activities by SMS : </li></ul><ul><li>2) With friends = functional messages that contain: </li></ul><ul><li>Organizing going-outs: when, where and with who. If it is easier for them to organize by SMS where and when to see each other (and even in this case it can be different sides of opinions), with who to see can be a very delicate subject that would determine a whole amount of SMS, because dramas and conflicts intervene pretty often in peer group and it becomes “pretty difficult to satisfy everybody” (interview extract). </li></ul><ul><li>Lending something = teens ask themselves various things through SMS and they also establish when and where to bring / take these things. </li></ul><ul><li>Asking for something= </li></ul><ul><li>Asking to a colleague / to a friend to tell their teacher to excuse him/her when they skip classes. </li></ul><ul><li>Asking to a friend for homework/a book/a notebook etc. </li></ul>
  4. 4. TIME OPTIMIZATION <ul><li>Contact through SMS: </li></ul><ul><li>Re-connecting with a friend / a colleague through SMS. Why a SMS? Because, again, it functions as a safe-net for teens, but also for the recipient: for the one who sends the message, he is testing the other one’s availability for communication and in this mediated and asynchronous way, they stay apart from any eventual rejection. Also, the recipient has all the necessary time to answer as he/she wishes. </li></ul><ul><li>Permanent contact: through SMS, teens stay in touch with their friends. Therefore, through SMS they compact physical distances and temporal differences in the way that, sending chains of sent/answered messages, they keep the other ones in touch with what happens with them but also in their peer group. </li></ul>
  5. 5. TIME OPTIMIZATION <ul><li>This permanent contact has two temporal forms: </li></ul><ul><li>Play time: SMS are sent in an entertainment purpose. They share with each other funny experiences in purpose of maintaining friendship relationship. Example: if they are in the subway or in another space where they have seen something amusing, they write a message and send it to someone close and tell that particular story in a message. </li></ul><ul><li>Boring time: filling dead moments (in subway, in the bus, during classes). Sending a message in these moments has the purpose to use that time in some manner and to communicate with somebody else. The recipient has to understand this need (because there are shared practices) and he/she has to answer. </li></ul>
  6. 6. TIME OPTIMIZATION <ul><li>Time in love message : </li></ul><ul><li>1) When do teens send most of love messages? The evening became in a teen couple the institutionalized moment to send this type of SMS. Why then? </li></ul><ul><li>During the day each one of partners is busy; </li></ul><ul><li>In that particular moment is supposed that both of them have the time to sustain such a communication; </li></ul><ul><li>“ we have what to say to each other in the evening” (extract from interview): once the day is finished, they share the daily experiences through SMS. </li></ul><ul><li>2) The answer: the period between receiving the message and answering has to be in the case of love message gradually shorter. Delays are not accepted, only accompanied by very credible excuses. And that is happening because the stake is very high: we talk here about emotions and even relationships built sometimes only through SMS (specially for those who have long-distance relationships). Therefore, the answer is waited with enthusiasm and emotion; it is a powerful await who can pass very fast to irritation. Therefore there is a very subtle barrier in this case and the one who received the message does not have to play with these things. That is one of the rules of SMS practice. </li></ul>
  7. 7. TIME OPTIMIZATION <ul><li>When’s the right time to answer your phone? </li></ul><ul><li>Context: teenagers spend a lot of time together (at school, during break times, after-school, in the commercial centers, on the street etc). The phone calls or they receive a SMS. In this moment, there are two possible times: the time “together” with friends and the time for the possible conversation. The user must choose: either he answers either he will call that person later. </li></ul><ul><li>Stages of taking decision process: </li></ul><ul><li>The user identifies the caller. </li></ul><ul><li>In function of how important the caller is to him/her, he/she will answer. If it is a very private conversation, the user will reject the call, specially in an affective relationship with the caller. </li></ul><ul><li>If the relationship between the two callers is a romantically one, the group’s reaction can be an isolation one or mockery, the teenager will renounce to answer. Besides, the conversation with the dear one is being considered to be very private and he/she will move away from the group and to answer in order not to hurt the caller’s feelings. </li></ul>
  8. 8. TIME OPTIMIZATION <ul><li>User’s choice will depend on the following factors: </li></ul><ul><li>Stage of the relationship. </li></ul><ul><li>User’s gender and exteriorization of feelings inside and in front of peer group. A teenager will show very hardly his feelings in front of his peer group, when the exteriorization of feelings is allowed for girls. This is not a strange practice, because it is known that exteriorization of feelings is culturally regulated, in the way that it is normal for a girl to be emotional, but for a boy it is not. </li></ul>
