Connecting the Dots of User Experience

The article presents a point of view about analyzing and designing the user experience within pervasive networks made of distributed services and applications, where the user is the primary actor who freely and opportunistically connects and activates the system components following an activity-driven process. A digital content case study is used to outline the main characteristics of this scenario and to introduce a tool for user experience modelling and designing. From the application of this model are proposed some considerations about how the design process could change to support this vision.

Bad News For Social Media ROI Skeptics: Study |

Bad News For Social Media ROI Skeptics: Study | | Expertiential Design | Scoop.it

Social Media strategies arean invaluable component of Experience Design!

 

A new study shows that the most social-savvy companies are using social engagement to expand marketshare, generate more sales leads and more efficiently hone their marketing message.

 

The Study - http://bit.ly/H6ndDq [pdf], conducted by Austin-based PulsePoint Group - http://bit.ly/H6nMgt - and The Economist Intelligence Unit, says companies that fully embrace social engagement are seeing “four times greater business impact  -  http://bit.ly/H6nyGk ”; than their less socially engaged peers.

 

How exactly was that measured?

PulsePoint looked at the effect of those companies who actively engage with employees, customers, partners, and other stakeholders “in meaningful conversations – enabled by social technologies – so that both parties benefit.

This mutual exchange of value is not just about products but about useful information that builds commonality of interests and a sense of trust.”

 

Key findings: http://bit.ly/H6nsyo ;
