Abstract

This paper describes the results of two qualitative studies which assessed the perceptions of Location Based Services (LBS) with two UK user groups: a family with a behavior-disordered teenager, and a selection of older adults. Whilst both groups had the opportunity to use, adapt to and experience the LBS technology fully, perceptions of ‘cool’ and ‘trendiness’ affected judgments of it, and subsequent usage intentions.
