Tackling Social Isolation
Dial Log is the concept for a social network that links young and old people together based on common ground. It instigates telephone conversations between two carefully matched people. These anonymous conversations are captured and put online, creating a library of human knowledge and experience, accessible to everyone. The online touch point, where all the conversations end up, allows people to browse the audio content. Visitors to the website are invited to engage with real human narrative, in it’s original spoken word with the constant opportunity to become a member and speak to a particular person directly.
We are all living longer then ever before. Dial Log improves the quality of life in later years by combating social isolation as well as reforging a link across the generations.
