Joel Schneier and Peter Kudenov have published an article in Mobile Media & Communication titled “Texting in Motion: Keystroke logging and observing synchronous mobile discourse.”
The article, currently available Online First, discusses an experimental study that Joel and Peter designed to observe how people compose text messages in-the-moment. Using a GoPro camera, a spare smartphone, and a unique chat application that recorded the time of each keystroke, Joel and Peter were able to observe and analyze how and when individuals deleted text they had composed, as well as how they balanced texting with walking around a university library.
This study not only demonstrates the value of applying keystroke analysis to mobile communication, but also the insights that can be gained when examining mobile communication as a synchronous performance.
