1. Simplifying the User Interface
In the event discovery section, which was the home page of the design, users preferred seeing icons of events on the map instead of the people hosting the events. The ability to filter events was also desirable.
2. Meeting User's Social Needs
In the events detail page, users were interested in knowing about the attendees instead of the host. Another challenge was to help users remember who they will be meeting. Adding pictures of the people attending helped users remember as people remember faces more quickly than just names.
3. Designing a Forgiving Experience
The events section, which held all the applied events, needed to meet user expectations of interacting with events and organizers, such as messaging them, sharing events, and withdrawing from events.
