comment What word can be used to mean either click or tap?
Good question. Both with B2C web sites a couple of times (when we were moving from copy with explicit "click" instructions since it was causing confusion when were testing on non-mice devices).

comment List of statements which can be used to measure the value proposition of a website
I'm still not clear on exactly what you are after. Let me try going at it from a different angle. If you had some good questions that let you know the value of the thing you are trying to measure - how would you use the result?

comment How to visually indicate a change in setting
Cool. That makes sense. In that case maybe add in explicit warnings about the risk "Private: No [bob made this public on 2008-01-23:19:22]" or something?

comment How to visually indicate a change in setting
Why is it important? Why does the user care? Can we communicate this in other ways than "you have changed the default"?
