A collection of common media sounds have been collected in order to test if people recognise them, and to see the effect in which they have on them. This small test aims to consider how sound plays a key part in our connection to the online world. This research hopes to reveal whether the user feels more inclined to respond to a notification if they hear the sound, and if they keep hearing the sound.
The decision to include a sound recognition text was to take a slightly different direction instead of just asking people outright how they feel about social media. This overcomes ideas that people will say what they think you want to hear. By proving or disproving that people were aware of theses social media sounds and what the meant meant that it did not matter if they were pro social media or anti social media, it meant that they were still aware of it and has still developed this idea that people are living simultaneously in a blurring online and offline world even if they are not prepared to admit it.
I feel like sounds will play a large part in the final project because, sound if used correctly can cause a range of psychological responses.
