Abstract

Technology for bringing family together or coined as Family Connecting Technology (FCT) has become a prominent topic in HCI. As familial bonding has significant implication in affecting the design and use of FCTs, research on familial bonding is deemed important, yet challenged by discrepancy on its actual operationalization due to the diversity of current research focus. Therefore, this study aims to discover underlying patterns of mediated familial bonding from family's actual practice of FCT that is social messaging system. From a thematic analysis of interview data, we identified two main issues: 'online shared activity as transitory platform of familial bonding' and 'effects from technology design on familial bonding'. Then, we discuss potential indicators of familial bonding that provide insights to our future work in developing a conceptual model of mediated familial bonding.
