What are Personas?

A Persona is a character that represents a demographic or group of users. Ideally, we use a range of different personas when developing a project and use them to imagine how our Users might react to our ideas. This helps inform our project further and ensures we are always considering the benefit to the user rather than only our own wants and opinions. In Summit Social, we have four different Personas with four different personalities and journeys.
