Re-testing the Perception of Social Annotations in Web Search

By Jennifer Fernquist and H. Chi


We evaluated the perception of social annotations designed via guidelines recommended by Muralidharan, Gyongyi, Chi, 2012. The initial study found participants noticed the annotation only 11 % of the time with annotations shown below the search result snippet. Our refined study revealed that the proposed design with the annotation above the snippet increased noticeability to 60%. Replication studies are often iterative version of old studies, and this was no exception. The new study refined the protocol for measuring ‘notice’ events, and modified the tasks to include tasks that are more relevant to recent news articles.
