Abstract [en]

This paper tries to explore that my designed software (FriendFinder) which I have done in my Design Project can be used to improve the social interaction rate among strangers. In today´s society human being make more interaction with technology in their daily life than before. It can be an easy way to use that technology to increase the social interaction among human beings. Many attempts were made and also some ongoing projects try to use the Smart Phone as a tool to increase the social interaction among strangers. In my designed project I also developed such software which will work along with the Smart Phone, to enhance the social interaction among strangers. In my designed application I have tried to design the functionalities which can be used in a public place i.e. café or bar and by using this application people can be able to interact with strangers easily, discover new people as friends and finally can be able to increase social interaction. To support the papers goal I have also conducted a field survey about my designed application’s possible demand and impact on mass people. In this paper I will also analyze the survey result.
