Abstract

Networked public displays can stimulate interaction between members of place-based communities, e.g., through situated snapshots - photos taken through a display attached camera. Previous work pointed the need for deploying networked public display applications in various settings in order to make the findings transferable and generalizable and recommends that findings should be connected with research from community psychology. In this paper we report a 15-week "in the wild" deployment of the Moment Machine 2.0 that allowed taking situated snapshots at a university. The application's evaluation involved in-depth interviews (n=20), survey (n=119), and log file analysis. We synthesize our findings with prior work and show how certain effects transfer across settings. We show how the application affected community interaction and sense of community as defined by McMillan and Chavis. We provide implications for design of similar experiences. Overall, our work contributes to the general knowledge of common effects produced by public displays. © 2016 ACM.
