Abstract

We present the basic concept of Micro-Crowdfunding and its prototype system. We also describe its experimental results that show how economic and social factor affect the behavior and attitude of an individual and community. We believe that our study given in this paper would be also useful when designing other social media based on crowdfunding when considering the balance using between the economic and social incentives.
