Social Influence in UX Design Research


Have you ever considered how your thoughts or actions are influenced by others around you?

And did you realise that this influence can be present, even if the other people are not?

At the May Meetup of the Enterprise UX Sydney Group, our UX Director, Áine Hart, spoke on the topic of Social Influence in UX Design - what it is and what to look out for as UX practitioners, as well as clear advice on how to mitigate the effect when conducting User Research and Testing.


Fortunately, for those that didn't attend the meetup, the kind folk over at Blueegg and Sustain Digital recorded the presentation so that you don't have to miss out.
