Understanding and improving social experiences
Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and User Experience (UX) researchers at Facebook seek to deeply understand and improve the experiences of the over 2 billion people around the world who use Facebook every month.
Our research spans everything from new gesture interfaces, to learning how developing countries use mobile phones for maternal health, what it’s like to play soccer against someone 3000 miles away, and even debating the future of online education. Using evaluative methods, from ethnography to usability, survey measurement to experimental design and log data analysis, as well as building new immersive experiences in virtual space, gives us a better understanding of how people interact and engage via and with technology. We apply our learnings help product teams at Facebook manage design for life’s interactions and social media engagements as well as push boundaries in new immersive technologies.
