Interpersonal Informatics: understanding ourselves through our communities
Elizabeth Bales, William Griswold
Recent research in social network science has found that that what we do and say flows through our social network, impacting our friends, our friends’ friends, and beyond. Conversely, our own personal choices are also the influenced by the social networks we participate in. We introduce the area of interpersonal informatics, a class of tools that allows groups of people to collect, aggregate, analyze, and share personally relevant information. The goal of interpersonal informatics is to help people gain awareness of how those around them affect their habits, beliefs, and health.
