7. Thou shalt create immersive experiences.
Merely looking good doesn’t cut it anymore. Sites like Facebook and YouTube draw in users with compelling content and functionality. Creating Web sites that can capture and hold users’ attention is what matters most.
– The 10 Commandments of Web Design
Facebook and YouTube are compelling? Really? Are we talking about the same fucking websites? YouTube…..Where Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend” is the most popular video ? Compelling?
I look at a lot of the comments and sections on both of these websites and just see how they are a playground. Compelling? I’m sorry, it’s really hard for me to take any of these sites seriously. Give me some content I can use, instead of a vast wasteland of what in the 80’s and early 90’s would be a public access channel.
