So I was in discussion with another front-end developer about a hover state on a block which is not a call to action.
It is a regular teaser item without link to another page or any other interaction. My question here is, are hover states only good if it lets a user know that he/she can do anything with it? Or can it be used for design/(fake) interaction purposes?
So I believe that the block should not have to be a CTA to have a on-hover statement. I just want to place a hover state on the blocks and let it float a little bit upwards + spread the box-shadow to add some sense of interaction. But is that right? Or should I, like my co-worker suggested, leave it without a hover state?
