Online emotions, in hundreds of new flavors

- Mizuko “Mimi” Ito, anthropology and informatics professor and current John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Chair in Digital Media and Learning, is quoted in the New York Times, Orange County Register and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette March 9, 2013
From the NYT:
Mimi Ito, a cultural anthropologist at the University of California, Irvine, who studies how young people use digital media in Asia and the United States, says it may be too late for these visual stickers to catch on. “Many users in this country,” she says, “missed many of the kinds of mobile use practices that characterized early mobile texting culture.” Other forms of visual-based communication are catching on here, so maybe there is hope for the mobile stickers. “The U.S. has clearly jumped onto the visual mobile communication bandwagon,” Ms. Ito says. “But in a way that is different from the emoji orientation of the earlier adopters.”
