Assignment 2 Brief

What ideas, themes, or issues do you want to address?  What is the purpose or intention of your project?

The original idea for the assignment was to focus on how much we think about social media outside of using social media, for example talking about what you posted on Facebook or twitter.  I wanted to bring awareness to the fact that a lot of everyones every day conversations include discussions about their activity on social media.  It started as an idea of a think or a talk to tweet mechanism that just expanded from there when we started working in groups.

Who is it targeted at?

I would say it is targeted at over users of social media platforms, and basically just marketing it as a ‘new toy’ for people to have will get people spending money on it.

How will it work?

Basically, you just think about what you want to be tweeting, posting, whatever-ing to whatever social media platform you want to talk to.  What made it fun was that even unintentional thoughts will end up being posted by people if they were just thinking about it and that would eventually end up showing too much of peoples lives making them aware of their actions. 

How will you make it?  What materials do you need to get?

Unfortunately, there are no current technologies available for us to acquire to make a thought to tweet program.  However, we will be creating a talk to tweet program and incorporating as much as we can ideally into the concept of our prototype aimed at thought to tweet.

How does your idea relate to what you have learned so far in Social Software?

Basically it is just bringing to light what we as social beings use these social networking platforms for.  People use these platforms in all different ways and it would be really interesting to accidentally see what people are thinking about when they are just arbitrarily just thinking about social media.  It could be a very dangerous tool, but it could also be a very interesting and thought provoking project. 

What additional research do you need to do?

We are going to have to do research on some of the different programming API’s as well as Twitter’s to make sure we are making this project work as effectively as possible.

  • I think everything posted made a lot of sense. However, what about
    this? what if you were to write a killer headline?
    I am not suggesting your content isn’t solid, but what if you added a post title that grabbed
    a person’s attention? I mean Assignment 2 Brief – Social Software is kinda boring.
    You should look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news titles to
    get viewers interested. You might add a related video or a related picture
    or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

  • I was wondering if you ever thought of changing
    the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got

    for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out
    better?
