This position paper documents the reasoning behind working together as interdisciplinary researchers thinking and investigating technological issues with and for the Nigerian population. It presents ideas that point to how our differences in positionalities, specifically cultural identity, gender, social values, religious beliefs, power relations, language and intellectual locale might influence and impact the practice of examining the social implications of mobile technologies and social platforms non-use, use, misuse and over-use to the psychological and physiological wellbeing and digital safety of different actors. We hope that our research and co-design practice would point to how differences in researchers and research participants values are negotiated and absorbed while providing inclusive and sustainable design insights.
