Persuasive Technology: Using Computers to Change What We Think and Do

Can pcs switch what you're thinking that and do? Can they encourage you to prevent smoking, convince you to shop for assurance, or persuade you to hitch the military?

"Yes, they can," says Dr. B. J. Fogg, director of the Persuasive know-how Lab at Stanford college. Fogg has coined the word "Captology"(an acronym for pcs as persuasive applied sciences) to seize the area of analysis, layout, and purposes of persuasive pcs. during this thought-provoking ebook, in accordance with 9 years of analysis in captology, Dr. Fogg unearths how sites, software program purposes, and cellular units can be utilized to alter people's attitudes and behaviour. know-how designers, agents, researchers, consumers—anyone who desires to leverage or just comprehend the persuasive energy of interactive technology—will enjoy the compelling insights and illuminating examples came across inside of.

Persuasive expertise might be controversial—and it's going to be. Who will wield this strength of electronic impact? And to what finish? now's the time to survey the problems and discover the rules of persuasive know-how, and B. J. Fogg has written this ebook to be your guide.
