…When we started our journey, I laid out some…examples of logic problems and user experience for you.…Links to single posts on social networks, closing modal boxes, No UI…interfaces, unclear messages, and unintentional misinformation.…Now we can use what we've learned about logic and…human communication to pick these problems apart and find solutions.…I already addressed the linking of social media…postings in the previous movie, but it's worth repeating.…
The direct link to any item on social media whether it be a post, an image,…a video, or a comment is hidden under the publishing date and time of that posting.…Historically this makes sense.…But it is neither intuitive nor logical.…The reason this convention is so prevalent is…as I explained earlier likely due to a combination of acquired…behavior and tacit knowledge in the mind of the designer and developer.…The key issue with these links is that they are not obvious.…
And as we've learned, you can't assume the…user knows what to do from previous experience.…
The core idea of logic is to create a system in which communication is clear, precise, and unambiguous, which is (or at least should be) the goal of any website or other communication.
