I will say even better approach is of material as it combines both of the rejected approaches in the article and tops the proposed one. Let me show how (one has to read the article mentioned in question to understand even better): First, Quickest scan but with label disappearing problem: Second, label stays visible but takes longer to scan: Material, ...

The easiest way around this problem is putting the number independently of the word. Like: Followers (0), etc.

The correct approach in English would be: 0 followers 1 follower 2+ followers

Data visualisation is statistics with a pretty face (statistics is mathematics) and fundamentally this is how we've always measured anything, Label. Value. Unit. Speed, 115km/h Force of 48N Gravity is 9.8m/s and in your case, Contacts Left, 6689 Humans or Contacts Left, 6689 Androids or Contacts Left, 6689 Aliens Without a Label, a user would no idea ...

It depends on the frequency of use and the context. Is the user going to see this on a daily basis in a dedicated setting, or a couple times a year in the context of a larger report? As grmmph already said, having the label on top makes it easier to parse what the number is, so it's more helpful for first time users. However, if users will be seeing this ...

In this case, I would absolutely organize the text in a readable data structure - Label top, Data bottom. When visualizing data as such, it is better practice to first give them the key for the data(which normally ...

Text label The text label has the advantage over an icon as being more easily understood. That is, if the copy is clear enough. You can be quite sure what action will trigger when you press 'Settings' for example. Icon But icons on the other hand, can be very ambiguous. A 'wrench' for example could mean all kinds of things 'Building tools', 'Settings', ...

This is difficult to answer because a lot rests on context. Depending on your app or page and the familiarity of the user with the task, a label like "Type" may be either blindingly obvious or as clear as mud. This is where user testing is so helpful. As a general rule I try to keep all labels short as this improves the clarity of the UI. Further explanation ...

More or less what Benny said, with a couple additions: since you're working with content, remember that blocks of content are affected by actions and may be affected by other content, so in your case, new is relative to other content. With that in mind you must consider these variables that affect your content (in your specific case, there might be a lot ...

You need to set the new items in relation to other items, and how often you expect to get new items in the list. If you get a hundred new items every day, it would be bad to have the new flag for 72 hours, since you would then get roughly 300 items displayed as new. On the other hand if you have a list where you only get one new item a month, and as a cause ...
