Abstract: Networking technology strives for maximizing the possibilities of connection among people; however, communication technology also promotes atomistic individualism in narrow communities of interest. Today’s youths experience this paradox as the increasing emergence of mobile communication technology and networked devices contribute to a steady decline of social capital. This research explores opportunities for using ubiquitous computing and location-based media in order to develop design strategies for engaging young adults in the issues of their communities and providing them with a space where they can raise their voice.
