Abstract

This project explores the novel situation and design space that emerges through implementing the popular digital ‘Like’ feature as ‘tangible interface’ that connects to the location of the events on which people comment in the real world. This paper describes a pilot study we conducted in order to investigate the potential of geo tagging people’s likes and dislikes expressed currently mainly in a digital form through social network applications such as Facebook. The aim is to augment virtual communication in Facebook with location based narratives and real time sharing of people’s preference for events that take place in the real world. The design process, implementation in a real world context, feedback collected together with observations enable the discussion of wider issues raised, in particular in relation to privacy, and highlight the potential in particular when implementing RFID or NFC into mobile phones for future prospects.
