Taxonomy of Emotion Engineering: Lessons from Mobile Social Game Business

  • Toshihiko Yamakami
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 182)


Based on observation of the revenue-generating engines in feature-phone-based mobile social games, the author proposes a taxonomy for emotion engineering. This provides a systematic approach for next-generation Internet service engineering with focusing on the relatively unexplored engineering domain in the human factor and business model studies.
