This question is quite confusing as every organisation has different requirements. Companies are combining UX and UI into a one person job. I believe UX is in the same area as a Business Analyst or Graphic Designer role as these positions take care of usability, accessiablity and the look and feel of the application. UI, on the other hand, is more of a ...

What you have on the y-axis is clear. The x-axis is not clear because there are no units. The dropdown at the top says 'Day, Month', yet it looks like x-axis is showing hours of the day. A few suggestions: I would challenge you to consider the value of assigning specific numeric values to mood. Does each number have real meaning? Assuming the answer is ...

Checkout the Rating Scales references at the Usability Body of Knowledge website. One of those, Tullis and Dumas (2009) offers some advice for situations like yours: use word labels for at least the end points of your scale avoid the trap of a bipolar scale (an example is given comparing a bipolar scale from easy to difficult to a scale from "very easy" to ...

I disagree with the assessment that the website looks good. Unfortunately, there's several things that make it look unprofessional. My very first impression was that it was probably someone's first website they ever tried making, and it comes across more as a spam or scam site than a site with legitimate business listings. Here's a few of the first things ...

That depends in how this info will be used. If it will bring more security to the user, i guess there's not much resistance. But you need to make it clear why you need his number so he'll be confortable/feel safe to give you his info. :)

There is a lot of context missing here. The answer to the question depends on lot of different factors. 1. What does the app do ? 2. Is it really important for the user ? 3. Is asking the number a necessity ? 4. If it's not a necessity are there alternatives where you need not provide so much details? 5. What kind of audience use the application ? If ...

I suggest to make it less intrusive. I guess you don't need to get answers to all your questions immediately, but rather your would like to collect statistics. Then you may do the following: Make your questions in the form of statements and let users agree/disagree Display the questions one at a time in the less used area of your website/app. Once a user ...

I would suggest a quick "setup" questionnaire during 1st use. Something like: Welcome to "NeighbourhoodList". You are currently in [geolocation:"XYZ"], please help us rate this neighbourhood by answering a few quick questions... yes/no, yes/no... Done!

If incentivising users as Das said (and I agree too) is not what you are looking at, you can explore "gamifying" your questionnaire. Take a look at this example. Regardless of which display method you choose, the content should be engaging so that users are more compelled to read and interact with it. Personally I would create a separate page for collecting ...

I'm not too much into the blogging world to say if it's common for the content to be "coupled" enough to require subcribers to "be up to date" and I'm not sure if they are necessary expecting to find the "missing piece of information" in the same blog neither. If you know they do, some options may be: If new posts are related with some older ones, the ...

There are plenty of examples out there to pick inspiration from. Here is a use case from stackexchange app itself: The social feed has exploded and there are plenty of streams other than just the latest feed. You will find Newest post, trending, top posts, active posts and so on... Depending on the application/delivery channel you need to identify which of ...

The 'Last seen' feature can be useful in a handful of situations. Mediating communication Some IM media like Facebook Messenger or Google+ Hangouts can be used both as synchronous media or asynchronous. Knowing that a person is currently offline allows you to understand that they may not be able to reply to you. If you need an immediate answer, you may ...

Tabs are usually used to divide a large content into sections and then alternate its views within the same context. Nielsen Norman Group has a very good article on its proper usage. They are usually placed next to each other (without spacing) to form a single component. The reason for this UI pattern is to let user know that the information the individual ...

Last Seen is used to show how active this person is, in sites like Stack Exchange it makes sense, if im browsing a user account its usually in order to have an insight of how active this user is, and/or whether the user is reliable or not. For social networks if you dont see when was i last online i am likely to be more active. In Social Networks it will ...

I firmly believe that fun, enjoyment, pleasure and joy are NOT off topic to the subject matter. They are actually the "talk of the town" in the domain of UX. Fun is a short term experience whereas enjoyment is an experience that lasts longer. Please check out the paper titled "Pleasure and Enjoyment in Digital Games" by Jari Takatalo, Jukka Häkkinen, Jari ...

Hassenzhal's Attrakdiff is a powerful tool to measure both hedonic quality and pragmatic quality (task oriented). I suggest provide the users with some tasks to execute on the website to simulate the purchase or depending what you wanna measure. Following the task, ask the participants to fill the semantic differential questionnaire. Let me know how do you ...
