Futuring Social Media

CMU School of Design
- Communications Design Studio IV (Spring 2017, 2018)

Students work in groups of three to give comparative analyses of three different social media platforms of their choices. They investigate how multiple layers of comparable platforms facilitate slightly different social interactions. After the analysis, students propose small scale interventions to enhance communication or experience within one of the platforms.
