A social media mobile app.
Troo is an ethical social media platform
I am one of the UX designers out of two. We have a UX researcher, product manager, project manager, and two developers.
Troo is still in its initial design and development stage.
Examples of sketches and lo-fi wireframes resulting from brainstorming sessions are demonstrated below before we started focusing on specific flows to test and iterate.
Customer Journey Map for Instagram User
Recognizing positive and negative emotions during part of the user journey on a social media platform.
Brainstorming Main Components of a Social Media App
Is this an opportunity to consider different dashboard layouts that the user sees when opening the app?
Accessing topics from the top or bottom?
Youtube's carousel layout for scrolling?
Accessing topics by sliding topics in from the left?
Troo wants to help users limit doom/addictive/endless scrolling.
Thinking about different ways for the user to return to their dashboard where they left off to help mitigate endless scrolling.
The idea is for the post viewer to create a chat room based on a post they've seen to increase direct social engagement.
Troo wants the user to have control over who sees their posts.
The idea to separate viewers into Friends/Subscribers/Non-Subscribers is explored below.
Settings According to Connection Type
Troo users will be given the opportunity to create two separate profiles when creating an account.
Inspired by Google's landing page for Search and wanting to be even more minimal.
The idea of incorporating a chat function within the app has been considered.
We'll start to focus on specific flows we want to finalize for our beta release. This will include lo-fi prototypes, user testing, and iterations from our findings.
