|Abstract: ||Started from the end of the 20th century, the Internet technology became more
common among people's daily life. With the increasing number of interactions in the
Internet and the improving web standards, "Web 2.0" appeared as a new generation of
the web environment. While things are being digitalized widely, social network
services were introduced to provide a space where people can perform social
interactions with the others over the Net.
This kind of service keeps growing and the social network built between people is
now in a very large scale. A service user’s friend list may contain a few hundred
friends and some users have even more. The list may sometimes be too long to be
scrolled through but it keeps growing. At the same time, the news feeds on Facebook
or the Tweets list in Twitter are also lengthy strings of text as the number of friends is
Doolu is a new idea to solve the problem of readability and user-friendliness of social
network services. With the supports from the newly developed web standards and
modern browsers, a visualized social network service with an interactive graphical
interface is proposed.
Doolu is designed with theories of social psychology and layout design. It aims to
provide a better user experience in using social network service.
A graphical interactive social network service would be built with Hypertext Markup
Language (HTML) 5, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) 3 and PHP: Hypertext
Preprocessor (PHP) and presented as the outcome of this project. With an Internet
connection and a modern browser, everybody can enjoy the brand new browsing
experience provided by Doolu.|
