Pictorial Social Networks

A map of the Brisbane CBD showing emojis in various places, for example a laptop where QUT is located, a train and a rainbow in Roma street station. A social media post by "laurianne" showing a piture of a map of QUT, with an emoji of a chicken placed on the botanic gardens. Below the picture, it says "reactions" and we can see that "sirin" said "thumbs up" "1 week ago"This project explores how inclusive social networks could work only using visuals, yet be interesting for everyone to take part in.

We designed a prototype of a social network that uses only emojis to

  • communicate through messages,
  • share with a group about various places, displayed on a map
  • comment on what others have shared
