DrawAFriend: Crowdsourcing through Social Gaming


Title: DrawAFriend: Crowdsourcing through Social Gaming
Speaker: Alex Limpaecher (CSD, Carnegie Mellon)
Date: Wednesday, May 2nd
Time: 12-1pm
Room: GHC 6501

Abstract:
DrawAFriend explores how social game mechanics can be applied to crowdsourcing. DrawAFriend is a socially integrated drawing game that allows users to easily create drawings of their friends and share those drawings on the Facebook social graph. The project has two primary goals: First to create a unique, fun, and artistic experience for professionals and non professionals alike. Secondly to elicit a large database of human-created line drawings that we can later analyze. In this talk I will discuss the game design of DrawAFriend and the results that have come from a limited release.
