The simplest way would be to let the user know that new content is available. These can be found in many different applications that dynamically load new content. For example say, the user has scrolled down a couple of times in an application with infinite scroll you can do something like this, For paginated applications, consider not updating content in ...

These are called 'Dark patterns' and these can be used in many different ways to influence users behaviour. Social networks as you mentioned put the logout button in a separate menu, Facebook in particular hide the 'deactivate' option very deeply in a settings structure. Some people also believe that you can never delete your Facebook account, when in ...

"I want something even more reliable to our visitors." Then don't force the user to use Facebook to log in. Whenever I see that, I hit the back button. period. If I have options, I'll stick around. If you MUST use Facebook's login API, ask for the least amount of permissions possible. No, you don't need access to everything. No, you don't need to post ...

When you sign up with facebook, you're essentially just creating a profile on the local site (Airbnb in this case) using data from your facebook profile. So something like name, avatar, and location. When you sign in with facebook you're authenticating yourself using facebook. Although the two are related, they are essentially different actions, and so in ...

Follow like what FB does, whenever there is new entries in the timeline, display a small indicator (button) that shows up saying "New Stories", when pressed it will take the user to the top of the page. Yes, in terms of continuity, the old entries still should be displayed below the new entries. This way, user will still have an image map in his/her mind. ...

What a great question, Niklas. I'm a huge fan of minimalism so I took a chance to write an elaborate answer. First, I beg to differ: the art movement and the design style are not the same thing. “Minimalism” as an eponymous art movement has formed in 60s, after the WWII, taking it’s roots in various precessing art movements such as Constructivism, ...

Generally speaking it is best to get it by having the user type it in themselves. By connecting / linking your profile, you may end up with lower conversion ratings since the user may not want to give their personal information to an app. What you can do however if users do not know their username on Facebook, you can redirect them to ...

If it's something your friends don't want to see, it'll be considered spam whether it's in a status update or via private message. With that in mind, however, there's benefits for each approach: If you share the survey as a status... Only your "Close Friends" will receive a notification about it, and even though it may look like spam to everyone else, ...

‘Liking’ something is easier for users than ‘Sharing’ it, mainly because casual Internet surfers don’t like to be burdened by the text box. But, sharing accompanied by a positive comment could potentially add more value to the webpage. Source: http://www.829llc.com/facebook-like-vs-facebook-share/ So 'liking' is a passive action, and 'sharing' is a more ...

I seriously doubt that also logging out of Facebook is the expected behavior in the most common scenarios. However, there is a worst-case scenario where logging them out might be the civilized thing to do on their behalf. The most nuanced approach would be to leave them in whatever state they were in when they came to your site: so if they were signed in to ...

The risk of removing the sign up is potential user hesitation/confusion. If users only see "Sign in" -- they might think, "But I never created an account! Where do I sign up?!" That said, I think it would be really interesting to do think-aloud usability testing and see how many people actually have an issue with only seeing a "sign in". My gut feeling is ...

This is very well documented and there are bodies that deal directly with consumer protection but in (my opinion) they are yet to catch up with reality! There is of course an underlying ethical question here : Below is a quote from "evil by design": Design is about persuasion. Marketers first codified many of these persuasive behaviors in the ...

I think this answer depends on a number of things: Signup: how are your users signing up for your service? If you are using Facebook front and center, users will just use this image and probably not want to change it. If you are using email also, the user will have to pick. This would work best as the user will understand your service and select the ...

Why not simply use 'Connect with Facebook' 'Connect with Twitter' on this screen - What is the advantage of differentiating between signup vs signin here? From the users perspective the action is the same - the only implication is on your end as to whether you are creating a new account for them or logging them in to an existing account

I would take Tinder's lead on this. You already have a proven answer, like you said, they have many many users with high privacy concerns, and Facebook. Clearly their UX worked.

I'm going to try to answer this in a way that doesn't relate too much on the implementation. However as of a few weeks ago, Facebook now allows users to log into apps anonymously. This is definitely something you can take advantage of. While it is good to point out the things you will never need and never use, you should state what information you need and ...

I think this answer can be summed up by one simple rule: Space is your friend! It's not just about being minimal in everything, as dropdowns/headers/footers/menus/etc. can be hidden/flyouts/modals/on other pages/etc., it's more about not cluttering up your page so the user's eye goes where you want it to by giving the appropriate amount of space so as not ...
