Multi-modal interaction with SNS

Multi-modal interaction with SNS

private webpage:  Building upon our prior work and using the results from participatory design sessions we present the design of two mechanisms enabling the multi-modal interaction with social networking sites. Tlatoque + Ubisketch UbiSketch, a ubiquitous real-time sketch-based communication tool, supporting information sharing and social communication based on natural interactions with paper-based supports. Our interactive...

Older adults who are not adopting SNSs might however feel like outsiders of their own families who increasingly rely on these services to socialize. Previous research has shown that...
