Abstract:Sports clubs are loosing their social role leading to a decrease in sports participation. The exploration discussed in this paper attempts to create a virtual sports club to stimulate social connectedness. For this purpose Bouncers; a live wallpaper for android smartphones; was created. Bouncers allows a group of friends to get insight into each other’s physical activity. This resulted in an increase in social activity through which persuasion within the group emerged.
