Ant(t)i-Social Network

In this project, we will collect data on how often and when our test persona, Antti, uses social networks. Then we will compare that data with his given daily schedule and obtain patterns showing him just how much he is using social Networks. We will also show him when he is most likely to use these networks. This way, he is able to take note of his bad habits such as using networks in classes, when he is in the library studying, when he should be asleep and when he is out with his friends. We are working from the premise that although social networks can be a great way to keep in touch and enhance our social lives, they can also just as easily become hindrances to us. They can stand in the way of us forming real-life relationships if we are not careful.
