I am developing a RSS news feeder. I want to keep it minimal and just to the point, that is the posts.
Some bloggers that post news mainly, sometimes they just write content like "You have to look at this", "It is awesome that Marc won the trophy, see the video". A post's image is about 95px height and as you can see in image number 1, there is a lot of empty/unused space that bothers me.
So I thought to have the size of a post as big (with a max-height of course) as the content of it. Doing this, posts with only one line of content will have a decreased preview as shown in image number 2.
In my eyes, with this way, the web site is more solid and looking better.
My question is what about users? Does this have a negative affect on them or their interaction?
How does image size affect their interaction ?
