Hart, Jennefer and Reid, Josephine (2009): Can an ARG run automatically?. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2009 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2009. pp. 3619-3624.

Alternative Reality Games (ARGs) provide an interesting platform to explore the nature of game play as they combine fictional and real world elements to create a unique gaming experience. A typical ARG plays over a set time span and players collaborate via an ongoing narrative orchestrated by 'puppet masters'. This paper presents a six week study based around an ARG which was designed to be repeatable, allowing players to enter the game at anytime. Through the use of temporal trajectories we analyse player's interactions and unveil a number of problems that hindered game play. The players lifestyle, pace and gameplay traits all impacted on the game and raises the question of whether a repeatable ARG can really work. We close with some design pointers that might make it feasible.

Sas, Corina, Dix, Alan J., Hart, Jennefer and Su, Ronghui (2009): Emotional experience on facebook site. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2009 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2009. pp. 4345-4350.

Although user behavior in the popular Facebook social network site has been intensely investigated since the site came live in 2004, we know little about users' emotions and values weaved in the fabric of their interactions. We report on a diary study for collecting daily accounts of users' most memorable experiences. Outcomes emphasize the distinction between public and private presentation together with user motivation for engaging in each of these roles. Findings also suggest that at their heart, people's most memorable experiences with Facebook are all about positive emotions, in particular those concerned with connectedness and entertainment.

Sas, Corina, Dix, Alan J., Hart, Jennefer and Su, Ronghui (2009): Dramaturgical capitalization of positive emotions: the answer for Facebook success?. In: Proceedings of the HCI09 Conference on People and Computers XXIII 2009. pp. 120-129.

Although user behavior in the popular Facebook social network site has been intensely investigated since the site came live in 2004, we know little about users' emotions and values weaved in the fabric of their interactions. We report on a diary study for collecting daily accounts of users' most memorable Facebook experiences. Outcomes emphasize the distinction between public and private presentation together with user motivation for engaging in these roles. Findings outline the role of impression management in the capitalization of positive emotions: a process through which people derive associated benefits from sharing them. Outcomes also suggest that at their heart, people's most memorable experiences with Facebook are all about positive emotions, in particular those concerned with connectedness and entertainment. Finally, we discuss the implications of these findings for experience design and propose design tactics and guidelines integrated into a framework for designing for connectedness and entertainment.

Hart, Jennefer, Ridley, Charlene, Taher, Faisal, Sas, Corina and Dix, Alan J. (2008): Exploring the facebook experience: a new approach to usability. In: Proceedings of the Fifth Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 2008. pp. 471-474.

The focus of this paper is to explore social networking sites such as Facebook in order to understand their recent success and popularity. Recent developments within Web 2.0 have provided users with more freedom to create their own unique user experiences. The conflict between traditional usability methods and user experiences are addressed through carrying out a Heuristic Evaluation to assess how well Facebook complies with usability guidelines and by conducting a user study to unveil unique user experiences. The findings of this study calls for a more holistic method of evaluation that redefines usability to encompass the user experience in line with future technology.
