Abstract [en]

Communication between people who already know eachother, and who use a social online platform to do so, have been thouroghly studied for years. Thus, the majority of the people we connect with on a day to day basis are friends and acquaintances. As children we were taught not to talk to strangers, and as we grew older we learned to avoid people who act suspiciously. These and many other factors are part of the reason we avoid strangers, but are we doing so wrongfully? Studies have shown that there are many benefits in everyday interaction with strangers, some of which are an estimated increase in happiness and letting people seemingly forget about previous grievances. There have been few studies regarding communication between strangers on social platforms, though. In order to try and tap into these many benefits, this study intends to find out how we can design mobile social application to promote strangers to interact. To help us explore this field of research we used a place-centered low-fidelity prototype application called StiQuick, in combination with qualitative focus groups. Our results show that the main concerns for developing a place-centered social platform for the promoting of communication between strangers, come down to three guidelines; flexibility, purpose, and security.
