Modern smart phones are now capable of gathering information about a user's social interactions. The authors have developed and deployed Nodobo, a suite of social sensor software for Android. Our first study group is a class of senior high school students, each using a Google Nexus One mobile phone running Nodobo, which we use to capture their device usage patterns and social interactions. We provide an overview of the system architecture, describe the trial, and share some initial results.
