13. Place your project in its broader contexts

30 Nov

A main concept surrounding my work is the idea focusing around human curiosity and perception within online social media platform. This is the idea that as human we have a deep curiosity and have a desire to fill the need to explore this curiosity by finding answers to things. (Konnikova, 2013)

This project also touches on the ideas of many types of social networks are becoming very alienating in where the sense of community is lost. (Chouinard, 2013) This is where I want to create a platform to help human curiosity find answers and to create a platform in which the whole world can begin to feel more together with the sense of community.
