UCI Research Study on Instant Messaging


The Nomatic*IM research group in the LUCI lab is conducting a new user study. This study involves using some beta-software for up to six weeks. We’d love you help. See the standard description below. Thanks -Don and the Nomatic*IM research group.

“Are you an adult over 18 who uses a laptop and instant messaging software (like AIM, MSN messenger, Google Chat/Talk, Yahoo! Messenger or Skype) at 2 or more physical locations per day?
University of California, Irvine researchers are collecting data about how people disclose their location. This will help researchers develop techniques to protect individual privacy in the future.
Run our software on your laptop for 3 – 6 weeks and be a part of designing the future! Qualified participants will be compensated $15.00 – $30.00.
