Human-centred methods for design of mobile social technologies : a case study of agile ridesharing

Mirisaee, Seyed Hadi (2014) Human-centred methods for design of mobile social technologies : a case study of agile ridesharing. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


Social contexts are possible information sources that can foster connections between mobile application users, but they are also minefields of privacy concerns and have great potential for misinterpretation. This research establishes a framework for guiding the design of context-aware mobile social applications from a socio-technical perspective.

Agile ridesharing was chosen as the test domain for the research because its success relies upon effectively connecting people through mobile technologies.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
