Title: METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR ACTIVATING USER CONTEXTS ACCORDING TO ONLINE SERVICE USE
Abstract:
Exemplary systems and methods enable consistent context settings for different devices of a user. When a user accesses a service such as a web site through a user device, the device determines whether the service has previously-stored context information associated with a user of the device. If the service does not have previously-stored context information associated with that user, the user device sends context information to service identifying a current context setting of the user device. If the networked service does have previously-stored context information associated with the user, the user device receives that information and switches the context of the device to a context identified by the previously-stored context information.
