Abstract

The usage of the mobile Internet increased tremendously within the last couple of years, and thereby the vision of accessing information anytime, anywhere became more realistic and a dominant design principle for providing content. However, this paper presents work-in-progress that challenges this paradigm of unlimited and unrestricted access, and explores and tests how constraints and restrictions may positively influence the motivation and enticement of mobile users to engage with location-specific content. Restrictions, such as a particular time or location that enables a user to access content, may be used to foster community participation and engagement, as well as to support locative media production and to enhance the user’s experience. In the end, we outline the timeline of our current work and further studies planned in order to verify our hypothesis.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
