Keywords: Internet of Things; User-centric Internet of Things; Social Internet of Things; Social Cyberspace; Internet of People

Abstract:
The Internet of Things (IoT), this emerging technology connecting everyone, and everyone’s 'things', is not about objects, gadgets, databases, applications and profits to be made from it, but about people it enriches. Researchers, developers, industries, telecommunication companies, and scientific communities have been interested in this paradigm and have proposed different solutions from different perspectives. They are mainly focused on the technical level, like performance, interoperability, integration, etc. However, whenever use cases are targeting human users, the focus must not be merely on these sides, but on human factors as well. Thus, it is essential to apply a user-centric approach allowing identification of application-specific features and understanding users’ needs, motivations and beliefs. This survey aims at encouraging other IoT system developers and researchers to pay attention to the relationship between people and IoT systems. We emphasize the value of adopting a user-centric vision. The goal is not to provide solutions, but rather to raise the right issues.
