ABSTRACT

This study aims to explore which factors have a impact on the spatial perception of mobile internet users. As independent variables frequency, motivation, contents, and place of use are considered. As for dependent variables, information connectivity and related spatiality of place has been drawn. The results show us that it us frequency that has a greatest impact on the spatial perception of users. The possibility of doing business, accessing information as well as playing games on the mobile internet extends the mobile space into every kind of information and communications over the limit of personal social connectivity. Related spatiality of places has also been enhanced by the amount of mobile internet use. What a person is doing plays greater role in deciding the nature and meaning of a place, not where he is. This research seriously urges reconceptualization of the third place in future urban planning. We have to think about what will be the future demand for public space and urban infrastructure, and prepare plan for urban space adequate for the coming mobile society.
