Only when miss universe snatches me: teasing in MMS messaging
When new technology is adopted to everyday life, existing patterns of behavior relevant to the application are transferred to this new media. In this process, some things will also change and evolve. This paper takes an empirical look at mobile multimedia messaging. Within this new technological environment I focus on teasing, an established form of social control prevalent also in MMS (Multimedia Messaging Services) Messaging. I draw from conversation analysis [15] and ethnomethodology [5]. My analysis describes the sequential structures of teases in MMS messages. I will conclude with discussion on the effects images have on mundane social conduct. Categories and Subject Descriptors A.0 [General]: Conference Proceedings Keywords Multimedia messaging, MMS, 3G, mobile imaging, visual communication
