Abstract

Nowadays, almost everybody in Switzerland owns a smartphone, which has become a ubiquitous device in daily lives, especially among younger populations. Although smartphones offer a wide range of functionalities, instant messaging, through WhatsApp and alike, remains among the most popular and used one. However, only recently researchers have started to disentangle the effects of different aspects of this form of communication. In the current project, we conduct two experimental studies on smartphone-mediated communication with young adults in Canton Ticino.
