Personal or Social? Designing Mobile Interactions for Co-located Interaction workshop at NordiCHI’14 (Helsinki, Finland).¬†

In this paper we discuss some principles to design face-to-face social applications according to the Collective Interaction approach. To foster social involvement an application should encourage participants to take the initiative by supporting social awareness to let them make informed decisions and prevent conflicts. Moreover, applications should be developed by exploiting familiar tools and existing technologies (e.g., web applications and web APIs, large screens and smartphones in our experiments) to be effective and easy to adopt.
