Peoples communicated on the current social media were mainly to share emotions and experiences in addition to exchanging information. However, the researches for discussing how to design the interface for interconnectedness communication are still very rare till now. It is especially true for this kind of communication based on the use of virtual characters.
This study tried to explore what interactions peoples would like to take to let each other feel “keeping in touch” emotionally by the use of virtual characters. The questionnaire would be developed, several constructs and their corresponding items would be analyzed by the statistical factor analysis. The gender differences would also be discussed. It was expected that how to design an interconnectedness communication interface through the use of virtual characters could be explored and analyzed in this study.
