Abstract

Social networking sites (SNS) retain status updates, pictures and links on profiles dating back years. Because recent and outdated information intermingle in peo-ple's SNS profiles over time, SNS interfaces risk portraying profile owners' bi-ography and true current identity in a false light. Visualizing the passage of time in SNS interfaces can preserve profile information's temporal contextual integrity and a truthful light on people's biographies. Focus groups with SNS users were conducted and digital media experts were consulted to develop temporal interface signs for presenting SNS profiles in a time-sensitive way. Some of the temporal signs were implemented in an SNS interface prototype that was evaluated with users. The usability challenges of implementing the temporal signs in SNS inter-faces are discussed. The paper concludes that SNS interfaces presenting people in a truthful temporal light sometimes need to transform the original appearance of profile information itself.
