Quite often we talk about how people are engaged with online services, though traditionally this is measured through click-throughs, dwell time, and a handful of other known instrumentation methods. As online applications and services becomes more complex, we need to revisit what it means to instrument and measure engagement. In this talk, the speaker will present several problems and solutions for new measurements of our connected experiences online from photo sharing to tweeting to real-time video sharing.
