Abstract

With the rising popularity of online social media, people generate a lot of data in social media applications like Facebook and Twitter. We present a communication facilitating system called SoBot, which demonstrates to obtain and utilize this data and works as a facilitating introduction system to help users conduct conversations with other users in offline social activities. We explain our research questions and some design choices around SoBot, with discussions on next step developments.
