Our main project during the Social Media course was TWIG - The World is Giving.

Starting off with the idea to develop an online community to support donations to non-profits, and using the research from our class, we brainstormed up TWIG - The World Is Giving.

TWIG lets consumers access ongoing projects from nonprofit organizations, monitor their respective progress, and make hassle-free donations to pinpointed causes. Users earn 'points' for various activities on the site, which they can exchange for goods from for-profit companies.

All four team members were highly involved in brainstorming and deciding how our program would work. We user tested paper prototypes and a medium fidelity Flash prototype. I created much of the paper prototype, and put together the Flash prototype. While we all contributed to the research, I wrote up our final paper.
