Melhuish, Jonathan and Beale, Russell (2008) News not noise: socially aware information filtering. In: BCS HCI2008, Liverpool.
An understanding of how people in social networks consume news media by and about their friends shows that information overload is soon going to be a major problem for many participants. Users dislike manually prioritizing their friendships to help organize this data, and this leads us to develop a new interface to help users to find the news that most interests them by providing a visual representation of social proximity, in which friends most visited and those most likely to be met offline we prioritized.
