WorldCupinion: Experiences With an Android App for Real-Time Opinion Sharing During World Cup Soccer Games
Mobile devices are increasingly used in social networking applications. So far, there is little work on real-time emotion and opinion sharing in large loosely-coupled user communities. This paper presents an Android app for giving realtime feedback during soccer games and to create ad hoc fan groups. This paper discusses the experiences with deploying this app over four weeks during 2010 soccer world cup. This paper highlights challenges and opportunities the authors faced and give recommendations for future work in this area.
