This PhD is in the intersect between teenagers (as users of IT), social interaction (as an activity), and mood (as a driver for concern). It considers teenagers’ moods through an interactive colour sharing social product. It builds on studies of colour and colour preference with adults and on the effect of colour on mood and behaviour from interior design and architecture. The aim is to investigate the extent to which, and the context in which, certain colours reflect teenagers’ mood and feelings whilst also studying the behaviours of teenagers in communicating their moods with their friends.
