Turning from image sharing to experience sharing

 

Recent research on cameraphone image sharing suggests that there are users who would like to have remote, interactive sharing sessions that enable them to feel like they are sharing experiences rather than just sending messages. We sketch an argument that one way to facilitate this sense of "experience sharing" may be to place image sharing in an explicit conversational context. We further argue that this would not be most effectively done by using the obvious synchronous conferencing model.
