Abstract

This idea is generated to enable quick navigation for history information in IM, BBS, SNS, and browser.

With information analysis, the bubble reflects a keyword for the chat, besides, the bubble size reflects the hits of the chat history about a specific keyword.

based chat history tree

When we follow social groups, we often browse the chat history to find something we are interested in. However, when the chat history is long and covers quite a lot of topics, it is time consuming for us to read the messages one by one and filter the useful contents.

For example, the chat history covers film, weather, post code, stock and house card. Each topic has different popularity. Only by slipping messages one by one, we can get what they are talking about and filter what we are interested in.

In our idea:

A veritical timeline with meaningful bubbles is used as the history information navigation tree. The time range is shown in this timeline.

Bubbles on the timeline show keywords about topics during the history.

The bubble size means the hits of the chat history about a specific keyword. Hot topics are shown in big bubbles so they can be obvious to users.

Users can zoom in and zoom out to view more history information.

Users can set specific keywords which they have great interests as the highlighted bubbles.

This idea can be used in many scenarios to quickly find the history information in the following applications/websites:

IM (Instant messagING)

BBS


SNS (Social networking service)


Browser

Moreover, it can be used in both PC and mobile applications.
