The aim of the workshop is to create a design framework for social comparison (a social influence aspect / psychological theory). The social comparison theory supports that in lack of objective measurements, people compare themselves to others similar to them in order to evaluate their skills, abilities, and in general to understand better themselves. The framework will address a gap in current research focused on the design space of social comparison for health and wellbeing behavior change technologies. The workshop participants are invited to share their experiences and viewpoints on designing behavior change technology using social influence (the influence of others on once behavior). This can include, for example, practical cases or design ideas. These ideas will be consolidated through a framework skeleton pre-constructed by organizers through a literature review and past research.
