- my thoughts on parenting these days for people of my age and younger. Lazy parents don’t teach their kids common courtesy.
the following bulletin is examining how people make a decision on amazon or pretty much across social media sites.
Think pinterest. Why is pinterest so in loved by your friends? so they know what you like then agree or disagree. Also, they will know how many of their friends like it.
i like and saving this heavy paragraph:
I suppose my point is that each heuristic implies a specific design feature, and the process of unpicking what the actual decision-points might involve gives us a much more targeted set of design possibilities than simply saying ‘put some social proof there’. Depending on the heuristics uncovered, it might be that simple majority preference (the Whiskas ad), irritating pseudo-authority-based messaging (Klout), friend-based recommendation (Facebook apps), peer voting (Reddit) or even celebrity/expert endorsement (John Stalker and Drummer endorsing awnings) could match individual users’ heuristics better.
