Within reach of each other : A qualitative interview study on direct communication through the mobile phone between young women (English)
Abstract [en]

Many studies on mobile technology are based on the assumption that a mobile phone can be understood as a technical tool, a neutral technical solution with which, in the absence of physical presence, one can interact at a distance. However, there are studies that point to mobile technology as a highly bodily phenomenon capable of affecting time and space. In this qualitative interview study, experiences of intimacy in female friendship are explored and interpreted through direct communication via mobile phone trough a queer phenomenological perspective. The results show that direct communication through the phone is an action that takes place between friends, often using messaging features in applications such as snapchat or messenger. Friendship intimacy can be created and manifested in a way that confirms mobile technology that has become an integral part of self and an independent form of communication that either replaces or can be replaced by other communication, but adds its own value and constitutes an additional version of friendship and closeness.
