Today’s ever-changing social life and work life demand frequent and sometimes impromptu interactions & meetings. Arranging a meeting at short notice among people poses innumerable challenges for finalization of a rendezvous and time involving back and forth communication among people involved. A plethora of social platforms mushrooming around is not able to address the challenges posed in collaboratively organizing or scheduling a meeting of people from within the city or from different cities.
A few platforms are available currently which serve varied purposes such as get-together among a group of friends, scheduling of meet ups, browsing and rating POIs. However, solutions which allow users to do all the above on a single platform with user friendly and seamless flow do not exist.
My thesis project explores possibility of finding such a solution and seeks to bring together user experience design, information design and purposeful branding in order to fashion a solution to scheduling challenges to meet ups in today’s world. The project aims at providing a solution to reliable suggestions sources of reviews for POIs for groups of users without having to switch between multiple applications and/or devices. It provides a platform to discuss and interact about a POI as a group or even one-on-one. The project also provides suggestions and deals in the users’ selected area according to their chosen filters.
