LYNKER: Internet of You

LYNKER: Internet of You

Do you know that by exploiting our digital activities and data we have become products for existing social media platforms? 

“How can we reclaim our digital properties from untrustworthy and unfair social media platforms?”

LYNKER is a new form of social media platform, empowering users to control all contents they see and share within a trustworthy environment. It enables users to make a more meaningful online life through more valuable connections.


  • MA Degree


    School of Design


    MA Service Design, 2018

  • I am a Strategic Design+eer and an interdisciplinary researcher through a convergence of diverse knowledge and skills from “Engineering” (Computer Science) and “Design” (Service Design, Media, and Architectural Design).

    I have substantial research experience in creating new experiences and value through applications of cutting-edge technology by bridging creativity and logical thinking.

    As a Strategic Design+eer, I believe contemporary design should not just be about solving problems or creating new experiences but should guide society in the right direction for the exchange of meaningful values. This can be achieved by combining a systems approach with creativity and logical thinking.
