Abstract

The study evaluates user experiences of I-um and Noondate, typical Social Dating Mobile Application Service in Korea, to suggest guidelines that are more user-centered and useful. I did some literature research followed with evaluation of theoretical backgrounds, present conditions. Also, I recasted to the six principles of "Honey comb model" by Peter Morville to conduct an in-depth interview. The result indicate that I-um needs to improve accuracy of matching system by checking user's interest and detailed profile. Noondate needs to develop the cards sorting systems so that user can supervise themselves. I expect this study will become a good resource for upgrading user experiences of Social Dating Service. I also believe that this study can guide other studies about user experience in other fields.
