THISN

About

THISN (Tailored Health Information in Social Networks) is a collaborative effort with CHCR and CDC's National Center for Public Health Informatics to conceive, design, and develop a prototype application testing the viability of using tailoring technology in a web-based social networking context (e.g., MySpace, Facebook).

Aims

To conceive, design, and develop a prototype application testing the viability of using tailoring technology in a web-based social networking context (e.g., MySpace, Facebook). The prototype aims to:

  1. Gather information from a MySpace user's profile (gender, smoking status)
  2. Ask additional questions and gather information via a MySpace app
  3. Use the data as tailoring variables for the Michigan Tailoring System (MTS) to deliver a tailored intervention (adapted Puff City content)

Participants

MySpace users with symptoms of asthma
