Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Many studies looked at mobile information needs of users and how to support those needs in the mobile platform and the challenges it holds. In this study I tried to take a different approach in arguing that the uses of the services available on the stationary set up are used with different motivations and goals on the various mobile platform context and therefore designing the mobile versions of those require careful considerations of that. I present the results of a study conducted to investigate how the use of Facebook mobile differ over the stationary and mobile platform and use that as an example to elaborate on the design considerations of similar services.
