Elderly and Tablets (and Facebook): Talking with Grandma

When: Monday, 2013-Jan-21, 11h30-12h00
Where: FCUL-DI, room C6.3.38
Presenter: José Coelho

We present a novel way of motivating Social Network adoption by elderly users, by basing interaction and design of an existing service around family awareness. Following an approach based on a tablet device interaction and navigation through a family (genealogical) tree like interface, we provide relevant discussion related with the use of family as a central role in Social Network applications when concerning elderly, and present the initial prototype developed making use of Facebook API. Presentation is motivated by the first experience with a typical grandmother and has the goal of generating discussion among the audience.
