Undergraduate design project initiated by David Kynaston

The design brief was:

Young people with learning disabilities such as Down's Syndrome, ADHD or dyslexia are increasingly excluded from social media opportunities. Your goal in this project is to create a new front end for Facebook (using the Facebook API) to provide a straightforward set of social functions optimised for users who have very limited ability to use text in any form. Rather than the single-user mode of typical Facebook usage, it is also likely that a parent or carer may need to assist or review interactions. Your design should take account of this in a sensitive manner, including considerations of privacy and vulnerability
