User Expectations for Media Sharing Practices in Open Display Networks.

Bottom Line: To assess these effects, we composed a set of 24 media sharing scenarios embedded with different treatments of our three independent variables.The results suggest a clear preference for scenarios where content is both local and directly related to the person that is publishing it.This is in stark contrast to the types of content that are commonly found in public displays, and confirms the opportunity that open displays networks may represent a new media for self-expression.

ABSTRACT
Open Display Networks have the potential to allow many content creators to publish their media to an open-ended set of screen displays. However, this raises the issue of how to match that content to the right displays. In this study, we aim to understand how the perceived utility of particular media sharing scenarios is affected by three independent variables, more specifically: (a) the locativeness of the content being shared; (b) how personal that content is and (c) the scope in which it is being shared. To assess these effects, we composed a set of 24 media sharing scenarios embedded with different treatments of our three independent variables. We then asked 100 participants to express their perception of the relevance of those scenarios. The results suggest a clear preference for scenarios where content is both local and directly related to the person that is publishing it. This is in stark contrast to the types of content that are commonly found in public displays, and confirms the opportunity that open displays networks may represent a new media for self-expression. This novel understanding may inform the design of new publication paradigms that will enable people to share media across the display networks.

sensors-15-16210-f001: Boxplots of the responses for the various variables and levels.

Mentions: These same results are also depicted in Figure 1, in the form of boxplots for the various variables and levels. The left and right sides of the boxes represent the first and third quartiles, respectively, and the line inside the box represents the median. Given the nature of our data, with discrete values and all the scenarios having the same minimum (1) and the same maximum (5), we decided to overlay information about the mean value (the dot) and one standard deviation below and above the mean.
