Using tags to assist near-synchronous communication

Gary Hsieh, Jennifer Lai, Scott E. Hudson, Robert Kraut
2008 Proceeding of the twenty-sixth annual CHI conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '08  
In this work, we introduce the use of tags to support the near synchronous use of instant messaging (IM). As a proof-of-concept, we developed a plug-in in Lotus Sametime, an enterprise IM client.  ...  A trial deployment and survey shows that users can see the potential usefulness of such a tagging system in their IM communication. Furthermore, users rated our design intuitive and easy to use.  ...  We would like to thank the Contextual Learning Group members at IBM Research Watson, the IBM Watson summer interns and researchers in the Math Department.  ...
