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 ...

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, ...

Twitter and Facebook buttons are intended to be different and it would be against either Twitter's and Facebook's branding guides to make them look similarly/the same. I also think it would be a bad idea to modify the original buttons, since people recognize them because they are the same on every other website - so if you change them, it may happen so noone ...

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 ...

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 ...

It appears that the workflow you experience is an acceptable, albeit frowned upon practice. I did find some additional information in the Developer documents indicating that the workflow you experienced may become unacceptable due to a new policy (FB docs indicate enforceable on April 9th, 2014 at 10am PST.) The document read as follows: As you mentioned ...

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 ...

A similar question was asked on Quora. As @stewart-dean stated in an earlier comment, the primary reason seems to be that it helps to verify that a user entered their email address correctly. Passwords can always be reset. Incorrect email addresses cannot.

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 ...
