Data Truth

Mar 2018

Interactive Webpage / Data Visualisation

This project collected my personal data on my most commonly used social media and visual three charts on webpages.

Wechat is a Chinese multi-purpose messaging, social media and mobile payment app developed by Tencent, which has the Mini Programs, Offcial Accounts and Games. You can even use it to scan code to unlock the bicycle.

I was wondering that how much time I waste on WeChat. It’s hard to calculate how many messages I’ve said because the data will be huge. So I chose a few words that I often say and check how many times I said. In this case, I probably know who I was talking with a lot. Expect for messaging, social is another main function of WeChat, which is called Moments. Pretty much like the homepage of Facebook.

I use Hype 3 in the first project, XD in the second. This time I would like to try some coding. AntV data visualisation provides code so I can replace my data into it and generate my diagram.
