Designing interfaces to afford enjoyable social interactions by collocated groups
The main aim of this research is to understand how domestic technologies for collocated groups can be designed to afford enjoyable social interactions. A secondary aim is to devise process measures to assess the nature of these interactions. This study presents a number of process measures and uses them to evaluate differences in groups' social behaviour when sharing photos as prints compared to when photos are presented using a television. Differences in gesturing behaviour towards the photos were evident across the two conditions. However, aspects of verbal behaviour that were measured, which were taken to be indicative of enjoyable social interactions, were not found to vary. Author Keywords Affordances, collocated groups, domestic technologies, photograph sharing, enjoyment. ACM Classification Keywords H.5.3 [Information Interfaces and Presentation]: Group and Organization Interfaces - collaborative computing; synchronous interaction.
