There's a kink in our connections
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Yo, Kik, WhatsApp, Tindr, OkayCupid, Snapchat... With so many social networks to keep track of, there isn't an easy way to see all of your friends and find others to connect with. Friends lists are split across platforms; discovering new connections requires navigating to some social network's integrated friends list and randomly exploring strangers' profiles until you can find someone you want to follow.
With ClickTap, we've combined a social ranking platform with a consolidated friends list to provide inspiration for interactive discovery. In our design, we hope to appeal to two of people's most innate urges (http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1753613)... the desire for social validation and the need to tap our screens into oblivion!
With this new interaction method, we hope to connect an unlimited amount of social media platforms with a single application. With a single back-end (designed around the real-time web database, Firebase) and multi-platform availability (v1 on iOS, then a port to Android and HTML5), we want to give people a reason to say, "I'd tap that"!
