comment Is infinite scrolling justifiable?
@IlariKajaste: Meh. Making an interface that works well with one particular interface device out of many possible interface devices doesn't particularly sway me.

comment Is infinite scrolling justifiable?
Okay, I can agree that infinite scrolling is not inherently bad, just that a lot of sites, like Facebook implement it very poorly. My biggest grudge against Facebook and similar implementations is that the loading of new content is unpredictable to a degree, so that as I scroll down, the content tends to jump and relocate my scroll bar, so I lose my position. This happens frequently as I scroll up and down, making scrolling a chore. That, and the obviously faulty footer issue.

revised Is infinite scrolling justifiable?
Changed "usable" to "justifiable", as "usable" is too vague and the point of the question is seeking a justification. Also, added in the correct term to the title.

@MarjanVenema: I agree completely. I have never navigated away from content I was interested in because of pagination. It seems to me that "infinite scrolling" is solving the wrong problem.

I think one thing that would be undeniable is that if, as the technical term suggests, the intention of "infinite scrolling" is to approach being "infinite", then this in combination with a footer is inexcusable.

+1 for educating me on the term "infinite scrolling". I am still a little skeptical, though, on this percieved problem of users being slightly derailed by pagination. I do not have any exeprience of anyone ever complaining "Oh no! I have to navigate to another page!"

@DanielNewman: I hope no one is offended by my phrasing, and I am open to more specific suggestions on how to make the question more about best practices. However, my intention was just to give a more personal and less technical description simply for approachability.
