Abstract [sv]

Informationsöverbelastning blir alltmer vanligare i den ständigt uppkopplade värld vi män- niskor lever i. Smarttelefonen skickar hela tiden ut notiser och information när någonting nytt sker till sina användare och den här utveckling har bidragit till att människor distraheras från viktiga livshändelser och effekterna kan resultera i tappat fokus, stress, depression och ut- brändhet.

Syftet med det här kandidatarbetet är att skapa en designmetod som kan reducera informa- tionsöverbelastning. Vi har skapat en prototyp för ett socialt nätverk där användarna kan filtr- era innehållet i det sociala nätverket genom en filterfunktion. Användarna kan skapa nya fil- ter, aktivera samt avaktivera och byta mellan de skapade filtren för att stänga ute information som inte är relevant för stunden. Genom vår gestaltning undersöker vi om informationsöver- belastningen går att reducera genom kontextmedvetna system i mobilapplikationer där sys- temet känner av din kontext och därefter kan filtrera bort irrelevant information som du inte behöver ta del av just nu. Vi påpekar även säkerheten i sådana system och hur det kan kränka din integritet. 

Abstract [en]

Information overload is becoming more common in the constantly connected world in which people live in. The smartphone constantly sends notifications and information to its users when something new happens, and this development has contributed to distracting people from vital life events, and the effects can result in lost focus, stress, depression and getting burned out.

The main purpose of this Bachelor thesis is to create a design method that can reduce infor- mation overload. We have created a social network prototype where users can filter the con- tents of the social network through a filter function. Users can create new filters, enable and disable filters which then enables the user to filter out information that is not vital at the mo- ment. Through our prototype we examine whether information overload can be reduced through context aware systems in mobile applications, where the system recognizes your con- text and can filter out none vital information that you do not need to access at the moment. We also point out the security of such systems and how it may violate the users privacy.
