In the case of bidding, history is relevant. I would add a ticker div on the page. Initially the ticker is hidden. When a new bid comes in, the ticker pops out a little with a message "New bids have arrived". The user can expand the ticker to show exactly what the bid change was ("+$105 on Wuesthof Knives"). As new bids come in, the ticker pushes them ...

Proper feedback is one of the most important parts of creating good, intuitive UX. Leaving it be would provide very little feedback and may cause confusion among your users. From my experience in UX testing, the majority of users don't retain the information presented on many "one time" notifications, so its likely that this won't be the most successful ...

Nice Design :) Coming to how you can show the content, I would recommend a combination of both using a loading animation to inform users that the new bid is being fetched. So it might look something like this Pulling in new bid from the server This informs the user that a load is taking place. Once the latest bid has been loaded, you could change the ...

Is this going to update at regular intervals (e.g. 10 seconds) or is it going to just be an open stream? If it updates at specified intervals, a progress indicator that will notify when the next update will happen might be good. Otherwise, I personally like a toggle above the updating content that will have live updating by default and allow you to turn it ...

Hundreds of actions among hundreds of users isn’t that much of a load for a modern database. Therefore, that’s not a real issue. Nevertheless, focusing more on the User Experience side of things, I think you should look at what Facebook, Twitter and Google+ are doing. They all notify the number of notifications which hasn’t been viewed, but when a user ...

It will be better if you start designing according to the original resolution rather than relying on the zoom level since there won't be many windows devices out there which have a default zoom level set. For e.g HP OMni Tablet has a zoom level of 100% set by default and its resolution is 1920x1200. So your media queries might not work there. A good ...

Taking the Apple example, when I choose a new wallpaper I can actually see it applied in the background without having to think or find 'Apply' or 'Save' button. This is true if you make some change and see it reflected immediately. Can you see the news-feed update automatically as you add/modify the filters? If so, no notification necessary. The ...

A good great example is the Google Drive message: It updates automatically when the user changes everything on the document. It allows to the user to be informed about everything is happening on the background.

Yes, it most certainly does apply to web products. Whenever something in the backend is happening without the user's knowledge and they are waiting for it to happen, and they get no notice, that's when the frustration kicks in. When ever anything autosaves, take a look at what some applications do. A great example of this is Evernote. They don't have an ...
