Abstract: Social computing technologies are becoming increasingly popular as it allows people to create and share their own content. Given that most social computing technologies are limited to fixed environments, this paper outlines an exploratory study which investigates the characteristics of people’s creative information sharing process; identifying user needs and difficult scenarios during the process, focusing particularly on mobile scenarios. The results give an indication about people’s potential needs to create and share whilst mobile. It describes the characteristics of creative information sharing process and suggests that supporting the process of information sharing by harnessing context-aware elements could be a potential solution.
