about this item

The Post Mobile Society: from the Smart/Mobile to Second Offline forms the results of an in-depth and multilateral study on the influence of mobile media on society as well as trends of technologies and applications."Second Offline" refers to the real-world environment whose elements are augmented by virtual information, an environment where people always refer to online or virtual information.

Presently, the main theme of sociological studies on mobile phones have been why mobile communication devices have spread so rapidly throughout the world despite the historical and cultural diversities, and in what fields and how they are used.

These devices enable us to create the above-mentioned environment easily.
