    ABSTRACT

    Emotishare is a web and mobile platform for users to continuously track, share and respond to the emotional states of their friends. The system was trialled with both large and small groups to explore emotional communication. The groups were provided with two alternate interfaces to the system (web and mobile), and usage was compared in order to determine the effectiveness of each interface in supporting emotional communication. While overall usage behaviour was unaffected across both systems, the results highlighted that the mobile system was better suited to encouraging ad-hoc emotional tracking, sharing and response behaviour.
