Abstract

Sharing social or contextual information on a social networking site is typically a quick and easy process using a laptop or desktop. However, on many occasions, the need to share this information will occur away from a computer. As an alternative, a mobile phone could be used. However, inputting the information via the phone can be time-consuming and even intrude on the user's other tasks. This will increase the likelihood that the information is lost or retrospective. By tagging physical objects using Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology, MyState provides a way for users to make the environment (to which the information is associated) interactive. Bysimply touching these objects with their NFC phone, they can quickly and conveniently publish this information to the virtual world. A Facebook application was used to exemplify the concept and explore the different ways in which users personalize these tagged interfaces to address their own needs.
