weConnect is an online service that enables mobile and desktop users to connect via exclusive and personal media channels. A person can easily create a media mix using images, text, and animations and broadcast the content to another person through a dedicated channel. The recipient can view the content live and retrospectively on the mobile or desktop. As a research platform, weConnect enabled us to explore the effects of rich media broadcast among individuals in close relationships.
