Published on

Yuwei Fu's MFA thesis theory : The next step on improving social network website is to combine three concepts: objects, social network service, and physical interaction.
Members post desired items with special meanings from a particular region, and search for other members that are traveling from the particular region back to the user's location.
Travelers act like couriers by bringing back the desired items and the experience of the trip. Couriers not only fulfill receivers’ desires, but also bring back nostalgia and cures receivers’ homesickness.
