Hi, I am Rohit Vairamohan. I design simple, intuitive user experiences and engaging interactions.

Knowie: Know your Fb friends

People today make 100s of friends on Facebook and barely know any of them. The problem we were trying to solve was to help people on Facebook know their friends by using a gamification approach. Once the user logs into the system, he is asked one question after another about his friends on Facebook. For each question the user is given two choices and can proceed to the next question only if he answers the previous question right. The more right answers the user gives at one go, the more points he accumulates, thus contributing to his reputation. The moment the user gives a wrong answer, the game comes to an end and he lands on a screen where he can see his score, the leaderboard and also post his score on Facebook and share it with his friends.

The Design Process
Brainstorming

The brainstorming session for this project involved identifying the perfect method to make people take the effort to know more about their friends. We finally agreed on the fact that it had to involve some kind of gamification and incentivized methodology. We knew that the hot or not system was a huge hit in the yester years and hence decided to tap the ideology behind this system.

Sketching

During/ Post the brainstorming session, we drew several sketches to depict our system. We also took time to sketch out a persona and drafted a storyboad/scenario from the same.

Final Report and System

Using all the initial brainstorming, the persona and scenario we designed a final prototype of our system, ‘KNOWIE’. We used an agile methodology to design the system.
