Abstract

Sharing has become an integral part of online content discovery. In many cases, content is relevant to members of a close-knit group, rather than all Facebook friends or Twitter followers. To explore emerging practices of directed content sharing, we implemented an integrated sharing platform associated with an online newspaper that allows members of close-knit groups to share and discover articles onsite as a part of their news consumption. The application was evaluated in a field trial. Participants reported lower sharing barriers and increased sharing frequency. They perceived value in sharing and receiving personally targeted news content. Based on these outcomes, we present design recommendations for such systems. Specifically, we contribute to the design requirements of group interfaces and directed information sharing.
