Was thinking about this as well for long time. I think it is related to few things: 1. Auto play. Most videos start playing automatically and there is no need to to press play at start. 2. For the same reason the default description area size is small; "push" users to (1) discover more videos and (2) get to the social features (comments and likes). ...

Will using the mouse wheel also scroll the page? Many people use the mouse-wheel to scroll the page, rather than trying to manipulate their mouse in a circular motion (which will not be easy to do for some people).

One common reason to want to go back to the top is to use the sidebar or top bar navigation, assuming they don't remain on screen as you scroll down. Another reason with social media sites in particular is that they often add new stories to the top of the page in real time, but they don't auto-scroll the page back to the top as that would obviously be ...

This is what I generally do: User interacts with the map (mousedown) -> set zoomable Mouse rests on the map for over 1 second -> set zoomable Mouse goes out of the map -> set not zoomable This usually gets the work done. When the user is in the mindset of scrolling the page, the map follows. When the user wants to zoom in/out they need to interact ...
