​Social media creates a whole new platform allowing people not only to keep in touch with their friends and the world, but also to share ideas and concept, and more importantly, to share attitudes towards life. There is no doubt that social network has changed the way we connect with each other since it is deeply ingrainded in our daily life. Ironically, as our life becomes more convenient at the fingertips, the between person to person is becoming superficial. So we decided to design an anti"social" network to reconnect the community.

Our class started with looking for the potential existing communities. Varieties of communities popped up. By catagorizing them, we were really excited to find there were so many design opportunities within them. Hence, each of us chose the communities attracted us and set about finding out problems and coming up with solutions. And my teammates and I chose the nutrition community.
