TOPIC: UX of Ephemeral Messaging
In a world flooded with messaging apps, the likes of SnapChat and Frankly have hit the sweet spot for the privacy-conscious user. Once viewed, text and video messages self-destruct within seconds. The disposable nature of these messages creates a sense of relief and security, knowing that your goofy selfies leave no trail of data.
Join us on Thursday July 31st, to discuss how the user experience of these apps builds trust and creates a perception of ephemerality.
Special thanks to Bitmaker Labs for hosting and presenting (topic in the works).
