Disrupting Design: A Multi-Level Technological Transition Study of Dribbble.com

Yiran Duan, Jeff Hemsley, Rebecca Kelly

Syracuse University, USA

As social media continue to integrate into people’s everyday lives, they provide a space for people to present their work and connect with others. This study seeks to understand how Dribbble.com, a site created in 2009 for visual designers to showcase their work, plays a role in the transformation of the visual design industry and design education. We use sociotechnical transitions theory to interpret 30 semi-structured interviews with active Dribbble users. We find that the niche site Dribbble, along with the constellation of sites around it, are changing design regimes (the ways work gets done). Our Dribbble users report that the site changes how they develop and maintain their skills, find inspiration to solve design problems, keep up with trends, network with peers, produce and promote their portfolios and find jobs. However, the site also presents some challenges. For example, our interviewees indicate that they no longer receive constructive feedback on the platform. These emerging regimes are competing with, and coexisting with, existing design regimes. Our work makes a contribution to social media studies by looking at under-studied niche sites, like Dribbble, and how sites in the design space may be impacting the wider society.

It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me: A Model of Online Browsing Behaviour (3rd place best long paper award)

Browsing has long been acknowledged as a critical information seeking strategy. Previous research on information browsing—browsing for books, videos or other items for which decisions have to be made based on an information surrogate—has focused on browsing in a physical context, and much of it predates technology found online today. We lack empirical data from the contemporary digital context to describe how people browse online. This study adopted scenario-based interviews and observations to investigate people’s online information browsing behaviour. Based on a qualitative analysis of the data, we proposed an online browsing journey model formed by four iterative activities: Choose the Browsing Collection, Select Candidates from the Browsing Collection, Inspect the Selected Candidates, Generate and Edit the Candidate list. This model offers novel insight into how people browse in the existing online context, which also forms the basis for further online browsing research.

Virtual Vessels of Empowerment: Exploring Everyday Resilience Building Tactics in Online Forums Focused on Nurturing Professional Development of Women in Technical Domains.

Subhasree Sengupta

Syracuse University, USA

Work and learning are essential facets of our existence, yet socio-cultural barriers may limit access and opportunity in such contexts. Women historically have faced several restrictions that have hindered their entry into professional ventures. Such constraints also manifest in technical domains, due to the sociocultural barriers in these fields which have placed such voices at the margins. These barriers have been associated with strife, turmoil, and emotional strain for those affected. Hence, it is important to investigate how women can subvert such structural limitations and can find channels through which they can seek support and guidance to navigate their careers. Motivated by this aim, this work through mixed inferences drawn from content and emotion analysis of 1062 conversational traces embarks on a preliminary investigation of a subreddit (r/girlsgonewired) to understand the ways in which community practices may emerge in such channels to provide various dimensions of support and resilience-building to help manage the struggles and travails of everyday life. The long-term goal for this work is to address the way in which such channels can be designed, maintained, and curated to offer spaces for enrichment, empowerment, and advocacy with a focus on professional development for women in technical domains.

Leader, Socializer or Specialist? Distinguishing Responders with the Cues of Questions

Qian Wu, Chei Sian Lee, Dion Hoe-Lian Goh

Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Community question-answering (CQA) enables responders to select questions, and respond to the questions by answering, commenting or voting. Accordingly, questions with different cues (i.e. complexity, specificity, emotional expressiveness, politeness, popularity, rewards) tend to attract different responders. However, the research is limited regarding the types of responders based on the questions they responded to. The gap inhibits us to form a complete understanding of how questions bridge askers with responders. Moreover, how different types of responders contribute to maintaining the ecosystem of the CQA has not been studied adequately. Accordingly, we conducted an online survey to organize responders by the cues of questions. Cluster analysis was used to group responders into three types: (1) "leaders” respond to complex and popular questions, attracting many followers in CQA; (2) “socializers” answer less complex and specific questions with emotion-laden words; and (3) “specialists” respond to complex questions with high specificity but seldom use the social functions of CQAs. Finally, contributions and limitations are discussed.
