An Early Evaluation Method for Social Interactive Systems

Abstract : Most evaluation methods address the perceived effectiveness of social aspect after user usage. On the contrary, the evaluation of ‘potential sociability' in an application can help designers to anticipate several problems that can arise before starting the implementation. For this reason, this paper proposes an evaluation framework able to analyze social aspects and to give an ‘early evaluation' of the designed application. In fact, the four dimensions that compose the framework (identity, space, persistence, and actions) can be used as 'indicators' in order to evaluate whenever the social system is able to facilitate the feeling of social presence. In particular, the presented paper will analyze the easiness of use of the method and its learnability.
