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 :)
