This week I enjoyed doing my research on personas, a subject that I find really interesting and helpful in usability. In this post I described my own persona for GNOME. Happy reading! 🙂
- Name : Mark Jonson
- Age: 21
- Studies: 1st year marketing student
- Occupation: social-media responsible
Mark is very passionate about social-media marketing, and wants to gain more experience in the field, that’s why he decided to volunteer as a social-media responsible for an organization at his University, that organizes events for students.
Goals and tasks
Mark’s goal is to keep the organization’s pages alive, so one of his concerns is to post quality news and to respond to people’s e-mails/messages every day. Given his responsibilities, Mark has to monitor multiple email accounts, social networks and micro-blogging feeds. Mark’s time is really precious as he must also deal with homeworks and their deadlines.
Mark is a very curious person, and he likes to be up-to-date on the latest in computer technologies, smart-phones and gadgets. Mark feels at ease when he uses his computer and considers himself an advanced user, as he likes to exploit it at its fullest. In order to accomplish his work, Mark uses desktop social-media and micro-blogging clients, as well as an e-mail application that allows him to manage multiple accounts.
Whenever he has an important meeting with the organization where he volunteers, he likes to synchronize his calendars between his computer, smart-phone and smart-watch.
Mark and Gnome
Mark tried GNOME for the first time on his best friend’s computer, who is a computer science fresh graduate. Ever-since he was fascinated about the fact that he can easily have access to the newest versions of his favorite applications and he can be informed in real time thanks to desktop notifications .
