Should we cite where the bio information is from?


Proposal for Interface Analysis

We will identify the explicit (helping farmers find a date) and implicit purpose (making money), goals and priorities of the site, how its priorities and goals are reflected in the design of the site. We will look at numerous features in detail, how well they perform their function, as well as whether the design of each aspect either enhances or impedes the general purpose of the site, with the ultimate purpose of learning how the design might influence how users interact and form a community, if any.
Aspects to highlight: Farm-Phone, Discover, Who Likes me, Mobile app?
