Work in Progress
Mobile instant messenger has become a part of our daily life because a smartphone is the primary communication device. To communicate other friends, they use a mobile instant messenger more frequently than giving a phone call. This study aims to investigate why people communicate others through a mobile instant messenger based on media and behavioral characteristics, which affect intimacy and fatigue. We expect this study would contribute for understanding the communication with a mobile instant messenger.
