I don't have a UX background, so forgive me if I am missing something. I am working on a small demo, to explore browsing a list of items (movies) combined with faceted search.
I was wondering what the options for interaction are when a new user comes to this page looking for an item:
In order to give access to movies quickly, I was thinking to have a general 'genres filter' to the left. When a user clicks on it, she can then further refine the search.
If a user wants to compare movies from different genres, it would be necessary to allow multiple categories to be selected.
Apart from this, some search would need to help the user to find a movie given certain criteria.
Now, I was wondering:
- Would it be good to provide faceted search from the start?
- How would the user expect to interact with facets?
- What data of facets should be displayed? When?
