Social media use
"Actually, I do not know why I am using Facebook. I think it is
a combination of curiosity of what is happening with people and in the world.
Posts and news are presented in a clear way. And yes, also to share something of myself. It is nice to upload a nice picture, to
showcase it and get likes
me in my daily life, and it is very useless because the things on Facebook are mostly
"I use Whatsapp really a lot, which I use to
maintain my personal contacts.
"Back in the day, you could do things one at a time and now I notice with Whatsapp that my phone is vibrating and my brain immediately goes to another subject.
It looks like you can never fully focus on something.
"My conversations on Whatsapp
have a purpose and more depth
[compared to Snapchat]."
Uses it when he sees something
(describes it as "random crap"), or when he is
, he creates an
out of stickers on Snapchat. When he looks good, he sends a
or adds the selfie to his story.
He indicates that Snapchat is
in comparison to other social media.
Describes Snapchat as
non-committal and casual
"When I send someone a Snap, it is mostly an
. If I send it to multiple people, it is kind of
"haha I think this is funny"
"haha I look really good today"
. The things I post on my story,
are not really significant things.
Compares Snapchat with a
: "When I send someone something on Snapchat,
it is like I tell them something in person, because it disappears
. The person will probably forget what I sent anyway."
"I think I posted a Whatsapp story one time,
just to try it out
I do not use these story functionalities
on a regular basis"
no one is using it
if everyone would use it, I think I would use it as well.
Voice messaging and calling
Calls sometimes, mostly when he urgently needs something from someone or urgently needs to know something. Indicates that it is sometimes easier to call people to arrange complex things.
Thinks calling is
because it is more
. "You need to
give an answer right away
, on Whatsapp you can just pretend not to have read it and think about it for a while. While with calling, you cannot wait a minute to answer, that would be weird."
Uses voice messaging on Whatsapp
, mostly for
long stories which will take a long time to type out.
"The convenient thing about voice messaging is that you have the
speed of calling
, but you also have
the advantage of not having the pressure to respond right away.
Does not like to
hear his own voice.
Concept and prototype Say
Thinks it has t
oo many overlapping functionalities with Snapchat
to stand out.
Thinks the audio-focus can be a
threshold to use the application in public spaces.
Thinks the application can be useful when he wants to tell something to someone real quick, like a
"I think the voice effects are
, you need to
yourself with this part"
"I do not think
5 effects are not enough
, actually. You need to make it real fancy and allow people to
create their own effects
slider bars to adjust the pitch, speed, etc
"You need to
the effects to keep people interested."
Indicates that there is a lot of
on the landing page.
Would like to have the possibility to
change the background.
Would like to see an option to listen to the voice message though the calling speaker in stead of the regular speaker.
