Social multimedia is changing the way people interact with each other, transforming old practices on political activism, social participation and interpersonal relationships. Sharing dynamically created video segments is a prime example of this social transformation. This paper reports on a long field trial studying social practices around personal videos within a tight social circle. Our results show that users appreciate the importance of video sharing for feeling more connected with group members and for building shared experiences. Our results also indicate that a new generation of video management systems is needed to maximize the impact of group sharing, with a focus on more efficient automatic processes to manage the social experience. A fundamental user requirement is finer-grained privacy controls over video content distribution. Paying special attention to existing social theories and human-centered methodologies this paper brings implications to be considered in the design of future home video management and sharing systems.
