Social media use
Less personal than Snapchat, only posts "perfect" things and uses it to maintain social contacts.
Uses Whatsapp all day, uses it to maintain social contacts, sends serious things, personal things, funny things, and has light conversations.
Uses it every day, only sends something two times a week
Uses it when she is bored, at home
Mostly sends crazy selfies, her location or food
I like the ephemeral aspect of Snapchat the most
because you can send real bad pictures that should never be shown to the outside world. And after they opened it, they are gone. So people see it for a short while, they laugh about it and after that it is gone.
I think it is nice that it does not stay forever
what I send to people. I send things I do not send to everyone."
Has around 13 friends on Snapchat
"I think I send things more quick on Snapchat.
It feels a lot more safe.
You do not really have to think about it. When you send a picture on Whatsapp, you know that people can save that photo forever...
I think the safe feeling really plays a part for me.
"Yes. Because I'm like:
I already have Snapchat for this.
And on Snapchat I can also send it to one person, I do not know if that is possible in Messenger, but with
Facebook Messenger i feel like everyone can see it, a lot more people. Because on Snapchat I only add my good friends.
Voice messaging and calling
Does not call because she thinks it is scary to talk with someone directly on the phone. When she calls, it is with her mom or a friend without a smartphone. She calls her mom because it is quicker than texting her.
Does not use voice messaging because she does not like to hear her own voice.
Would use it to let other people hear a song
I have a lot of people who send voice messages to me
, but I actually never reply with a voice message because
I really dislike hearing my own voice
. So I do not do that, and it does not appeal to me at all."
"Maybe it is also because
I am way better in explaining things in text.
I can talk pretty good but sometimes I cannot find the right words to express myself, if I type, it goes way better. That is why I like talking less."
Concept and prototype Say
"I think it is funny, because
I would actually prefer to use this over Whatsapp voice messaging, because it disappears.
But I think I would still not use it, because I do not use it in Whatsapp."
If all of my friends would use it,
I would probably use it too"
"I have some friend who always send a voice message,
I think that they would really love this.
"I think i would not post a story with this application. What should I tell?
I think that if you send a voice message, it is really personal or you should be a singer.
it should become more popular that people express themselves with words instead of pictures
or something, but I have no idea how. What I do know, is that there is a poet, who writes short poems and he recently started to read and record his poems.
A lot of people really love to hear him read his poems
"And you have things like
, of course. They should let a hot, male voice narrate their things or something. Of course you can do some funny things with just words. Or maybe record something with someone with a typical accent from Amsterdam.
I think that can be really popular and that people could laugh about that."
"One thing I noticed right away was that
I think the background is too dark.
Maybe if the dark part would be a little bit lower, it would be better"
I would definitely make this
[points to time and date next to name]
way smaller and the names bigger.
I think this is really ugly."
"Maybe you can make this [points to stories] more clear by adding "stories" on top.
Because if you press it, it is not really clear where you are.
I do think the design is
very beautiful and organized.
I like the white letters. It all looks very clear and I think the
symbols are also clear.
"I think it would be cool to have to ability to
choose your own background
"I think 5 effects are ok. Because with Snapchat
I like that the filters change.
But maybe with voice messaging I will need something else. For example, when I really want to say something in an angry way, like a werewolf or something.
Maybe there should be a possibility to look that up or purchase that effect,
I do not know, but maybe that is an option."
"Maybe you can implement a
reward system instead of paying
. So with every 100 or 50 sent messages, you get an extra effect. Or when it is a
, you can choose an extra effect. Or maybe something with
, I do not know if they would like to pay for it, or in other situations people might pay for it.
There are always people who want to pay for it.
"Maybe it would be really cool if people are able to
forward something to their friends, or that you can tag a friend.
But maybe that is difficult because you want it to disappear."
"Yes, maybe you can
that only your friends can hear your message or that they are allowed to forward it."
