(English)In: International Journal of Mobile Human Computer Interaction, ISSN 1942-390X, E-ISSN 1942-3918Article in journal (Refereed) Submitted
In this paper we describe a mobile photo sharing system and a mass scale evaluation at a local youth festival. The system prevents pictures received from being forwarded and aims at adding meaning to photos shared through such a system making them collectable. The study setup was at a large youth festival where 400 teenagers had their photo taken and given the opportunity to have the application installed on their own phones. Although we achieved a large user base, the actual use was never triggered to reach critical mass. We report on the experience of the users, and also report on how teenagers in our study mostly share photos by looking at each other’s phone screens.
