comment difference between liking and following something
thx, that seems accurate. Liking / Following clearly have a context wrapper that determines that follow-up activity.

comment difference between liking and following something
so that's the key issue. facebook seems to make liking something get updates from it but a lot of people don't like it. However, facebook is a bit of an anomoly due to its size. thx

@DannyVarod if you liked something, would you expect to be alerted about updates to it?

so, as an end user, would you want / expect to be updated - not necassarily check in on it. Would you feel that if you liked something that you might also need to follow it? I guess that's more the question that I'm wondering about.

comment How do you make sure UX is part of a new web strategy?
get the book Lean UX; it's short and has reasonable answers to all of the questions. Most importantly, factor in two things (1) the culture of your company and (2) how you can make your bosses look better in the eyes of the other people.

comment What is the standard practice for a mouse-over “highlight” of a picture that is under the cursor?
if a website, I like how instagram does it, where it shows meta information and expands out the layout. Very clean but has a lot of information when desired.

comment Graphic representation of various data types
why would an end-user need to know the format? a user is expected to know the difference between 0 and 1 meaning. PROGRAMMERS CAN'T EVEN AGREE ON THAT!

comment how to handle a designer when a design looks bad / getting the best landing page design from a new designer
just an email specifying the colors; it's a green field project so no style guide yet.

If you're doing freelance, speed is always an issue. Usally, I ask him them if they think they can do a good job in the specified time frame. I fully understand the more time thing but usually in an hour and a half, you either can make it look good or not.

definitely could be - I always feel like great designers though can do great work quickly. Like a generic boring design is of concern. Like the design for this site (the blue top pieces) would be fine; like it looks modern and fine. But a bad blog from 2005, ugh...

not getting colors right is inexcusable

If you can give a designer an OmniGraffle of a layout, they should be able to make it look modern and good. Like I said, I agree with your points, he's probably not the guy for me.

Thx for response. So I probably should have been more explicit about the 'back and forthing'; I always want them to email me specific questions about how I want it to look. A lot o f designers spend WAY too much time on the actual biz logic which is really irrelevant. When working with a new designer, I always end every email with "If any questions, please let me know" so to not email about color schemes is unforgivable. I agree with your other points. I know an hour and a half is not a lot of time but to be honest, most designers are now expected to do a design for a job interview.

comment Buttons replacing a link for a consistent style
actually title was edited, not a big deal. I'd kinda agree with your comment but this is definitely a special case (hence asking question). Wanted some feedback before we spend an hour talking with a designer (which we would have)

comment Buttons replacing a link for a consistent style
@ben - it's basically a list of items that are editable. It previously was a big webform but I've changed it to be individual items that have update functionality. We're kinda in the midst of mocking it up and that's why I'm asking.
