Persuasive Systems: Does the end justify the means?

Eckles and Kaptein walk through the ethical implications of using means-based persuasive systems. It is a good paper that forces us to consider certain questions in the context of where this field goes:

  • How do we abstract certain types of data?
  • How do we deal with personal information in these systems?
  • How do we think about disclosing the existence of such systems and their end purpose to users? 
  • Is disclosure necessary? 
  • If so, what facts about the system should be disclosed and when?

Just the tip of the iceberg…enjoy :)
