Papers from all three ReDefTie subprojects were accepted to ICA 2015 (San Juan, Puerto Rico). We’re looking forward to giving talks about the informational benefits of social media use (Sonja), the psychological effects of browsing Facebook (Ruoyun), and ambient awareness (Ana). Slides from our talks will be made available online shortly after the conference. Follow this blog for updates from ICA 2015 and ReDefTie.
ICWSM 2014 took place at the University of Michigan, in sunny Ann Arbor, with chairs Eytan Adar @eytanadar and Paul Resnick @presnick. For me and quite a few others, this was a first time at this conference, so I would like to share some general impressions (for a more complete overview see the conference website and preface).
