Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the mobile music practices of early teenagers. It explains that mobile music listening for young people is often collective and characterized by music sharing as a form of social display linked to group formation, friendship, and identity. It suggests that their listening practices show that there is nothing implicitly anti-social about mobile music players and explains that young adolescents are reflexive around the music, not the technology.

Keywords: teenagers, mobile music listening, music sharing, group formation, friendship, identity, anti-social
