This book looks at the ways that present-day young people use, and interact with, their cell phones. They are not used just for phone calls anymore.

Fantastic website, great you tube video links. Currently a student writing a paper on anthropology as a historical approach and learnt so much more from this site - anthropology is broad and narrow at the same time, it's all about what you want to find, and not unrealistic. This website really cannot get much more up to date, very useful. Thank you.

"The Mobile Youth: Voices of The Mobile Generation" is a very interesting read. Graham Brown illustrates how mobile phones have changed the way we communicate. He offers examples, some very extreme, of how the lives of Generation Y have been influenced by mobile phones.
