We have created a visualization that presents one week of a person's Facebook messages and notifications. The focus here is to allow someone to quickly catch up with what has been going on in their feed, which messages were "hot", who has been active, etc. The tool leverages a number of different visualization techniques and can benefit from a very large display.
At the Information Interfaces Lab, computing technologies are developed that help people take advantage of information to enrich their lives. The lab group develops ways to help people understand information via user interface design, information visualization, peripheral awareness techniques and embodied agents. The goal is to help people make better judgments by learning from all the information available to them.
