AbstractThe rise of locative, social, and mobile media in the form of smartphones has been as uneven as it has been dynamic. Given recent debates in global media about surveillance and location-based media, this paper provides some nuanced examples of how everyday smartphone users are reflecting upon location-based services within the smartphone convergence. In particular, this paper considers how the unique ways location-based services are, and are not, being taken up within a context once lauded for its new media uptake, South Korea. I consider some of the resistances to services such as geo-tagging that are partly informed by issues around corporate (Samsung) surveillance and also partly about a more prosaic view to sharing details via social mobile media.
