CONNECTED.Connected is a data visualisation of the frequency that we receive supportive messages via social media; it’s about connecting to the internet, and to each-other.Using light to symbolically represent the receiving of these messages, it hopes to remind users that a supportive network is consistently available, but also help them reconsider their use of social media through the presentation of data. Unlike the data visualisations that already exist, Connected aims to provide a more holistic and optimistic view of what we’re doing on our phones. By providing more insightful statistics, such as the frequency of supportive messages received, or the topics of conversation shared, Connected aims to fight the stereotype that social media is inherently bad and provide comfort to its users.
