Lampinen, Airi, Lehtinen, Vilma, Lehmuskallio, Asko and Tamminen, Sakari (2011): We're in it together: interpersonal management of disclosure in social network services. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2011 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2011. pp. 3217-3226. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/1978942.1979420

The workload needed for managing privacy and publicness in current social network services (SNSs) is placed on individuals, yet people have few means to control what others disclose about them. This paper considers SNS-users' concerns in relation to online disclosure and the ways in which they cope with these both individually and collaboratively. While previous work has focused mainly on individual coping strategies, our findings from a qualitative study with 27 participants suggest that collaborative strategies in boundary regulation are of additional importance. We present a framework of strategies for boundary regulation that informs both theoretical work and design practice related to management of disclosure in SNSs. The framework considers disclosure as an interpersonal process of boundary regulation, in which people are dependent on what others choose to disclose about them. The paper concludes by proposing design solutions supportive of collaborative and preventive strategies in boundary regulation that facilitate the management of disclosure online.

Kankainen, Anu and Lehtinen, Vilma (2011): Creative personal projects of the elderly as active engagements with interactive media technology. In: Proceedings of the 2011 Conference on Creativity and Cognition 2011. pp. 175-184. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2069618.2069648

Interactive media technologies are increasingly designed to support an active life among senior citizens and not solely to diminish the effects of physical and cognitive decline. One aspect of active life in one's old age is engagement in creative "personal projects," such as new hobbies and reflection on past events. To our knowledge, research has not yet explicitly focused on the role of creative personal projects in senior citizens' media use. In our analysis of media diaries and contextual interviews with seven seniors, we focus on how interactive media technologies are involved in these projects. Proceeding from our findings, we provide suggestions on how to enhance creative personal projects with interactive media technology design.

Lehtinen, Vilma, Nsnen, Jaana and Sarvas, Risto (2009): "A little silly and empty-headed": older adults' understandings of social networking sites. In: Proceedings of the HCI09 Conference on People and Computers XXIII 2009. pp. 45-54. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1671011.1671017

This study suggests reasons for the absence of a growing proportion of the population, the so-called baby boomers, from the otherwise highly popular social networking sites. We explore how people of this age group understand social networking sites and how these understandings fit certain aspects of their life. Designing social networking sites that match older adults' life would increase their possibilities of coping with the changes related to their age and of contributing to the information society. In a qualitative study involving use of an existing social networking site, and group and personal interviews, we found that understanding the internet as a dangerous place, and social networking sites as places of socially unacceptable behavior, hinders the use of these technologies. To include older adults, we propose arrangement of social events for getting familiarized with these services and offering of clear and simple privacy management on the sites. These actions have implications for users of all ages.
