The Cell Phone as a social artefact within the family : a study focused on parents (English)
Abstract [en]

Studies of modern communication media such as Cell Phones and so called Instant Messengers are popular today. This study focused on these modern techniques, focused on parents as a target group and on what is important for them in everyday communication.

By exploratory using three focus groups it became clear that the children, and the link to them was the absolute most important thing for the parents. It became clear that this link to a great extent today exists through the mobile phone.

In a following study a Mobile Instant Messenger called My Friends was introduced. It was used by two families during two weeks to see how it would change the communication within the family. The focus was to see how problems with availability were handled, it turned out that:

My friends had a more obvious way of indicating availability than the Cell Phone had. It was also consulted before making contact through other media.

Emphasis was also put to find out what kind of communication the different media; phone call (Cell Phone), texting and Instant Messenger supports. It showed that three variables seemed to be important when choosing media:

• the haste of the business

• the goal of the business

• the need for precision

The bigger knowledge two people had of each other the more the latter was affected but the first two were unaffected.

Abstract [sv]

Studier av moderna kommunikationsmedia som mobiltelefonen och så kallade Instant Messengers är populära idag. Denna studie fokuserade på dessa moderna tekniker, och koncentrerade sig på målgruppen föräldrar, och vad som är viktigt för dem i deras vardagskommunikation.

Genom att först i explorativt syfte använda tre fokusgrupper framkom det att barnen, och länken till dem, var det absolut viktigaste för föräldrarna. Det framgår i studien att länken till barnen idag till stor del finns genom mobiltelefonen.

I en andra studie introducerades en mobil Instant Messenger kallad My Friends. Denna användes av två familjer under två veckors tid för att se hur den rådande kommunikationen inom familjen förändrades.

Här fokuserades det på hur problem med tillgänglighet löstes, och det visade sig att:

My Friends hade ett tydligare sätt att visa tillgänglighet än mobiltelefonen, och den konsulterades ibland även när den faktiska kommunikationen skedde genom andra media.

Stor emfas lades också på att utröna vilken typ av kommunikation de olika medierna mobiltelefoni, SMS och Instant Messenger stödjer. Det visade sig att tre variabler verkar vara viktiga när val av kommunikationsmedia görs:

• ärendets brådska

• ärendets mål

• behov av exakthet

Ju större kännedom två personer hade om varandra desto mer påverkades den senare medan de två föregående förblev oförändrade.
