Interim Report: Landscaping Mobile Social Media and Mobile Payments in Indonesia

Tom Boellstorff, Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Irvine, has posted the interim report of research conducted collaboratively with IMTFI and Sicap.

The interim report, entitled "Landscaping Mobile Social Media and Mobile Payments in Indonesia," is based on data collected up to July 15, 2012 by research teams in the cities of Surabaya (East Java province) and Makassar (South Sulawesi province) in Indonesia. The report considers entryways into e-commerce, the dominance of Blackberry, the mobilization of locality, the use of mobile devices for reselling, and the genres of mobile commodities reported by respondents.
