This question already has an answer here:
I am creating a website that I want to have an infinite loading system on the home page. This page contains a tiled list that will fill up the page from left to right, and also most likely from top to bottom (and further).
I have researched infinite scrolling, and found two ways to do it: automatic scrolling, and 'Load More' button scrolling.
Which one should I use for the page design I said above? Should I use an automatic scroll mechanism (like this one), or a button infinite scroll mechanism (where you press a 'Load More' button to load the rest of the page)?
If there is no specific one that I should use, which one do people actually prefer?
