Social networks in an NFC context
2010 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The objective of this thesis is to study how to interact with social networks from NFC-enabled devices (NFC is a close proximity wireless communication technology). As NFC-enabled devices are often very limited, this could be quite challenging. The thesis also investigates what could be gained from interacting with social networks. The thesis has produced an API for Java Micro Edition (Java ME) that enables interaction with Facebook, WordPress and Twitter from mobile phones. The thesis has also produced a generic API that enables other services to more easily add support for interacting with their services from Java ME enabled devices. To show that the API is working, a prototype application has been implemented. The prototype revolves around a cinema scenario, where the user is able to watch a movie-trailer as well as share it with his friends on social networks by simply touching a movie-poster with his mobile phone.
