Abstract:Creating full websites to share projects can be difficult and time consuming. Finding members to work on said projects can be equally demanding. MyTri is a project-based social network that allows users to quickly share projects and find collaborators. Preliminary testing has shown MyTri's project pages to be a viable option for sharing project information. This thesis will go over the development and design processes of building such a social networking website and provide suggestions for future work. More specifically, this document will provide examples that utilize visualizations and game-like features within a working social networking website. While these examples are useful, they are here to be used as stepping stones for future development of social networking websites (particularly when concerned with encouraging participation within these sites) rather than as a definitive guide.
