Redesign of Facebook Stories/Main screen

Stories format of communication is seen in almost all major social media applications. But Facebook being a giant among the social media it was not able to push this stories format largely into users compared to other platforms. Facebook Stories I have seen my friends checking Insta stories, Whatsapp stories but very very rarely I see them checking Facebook stories.There are many reasons for this. One of them is the Design of the application. In the application we see Status bar- top most, Stories, ‘what’s on your mind?’, Feed, Tab Bar- lowest part [ iOS design ]. Following above pattern ‘Feed’ goes to the lower portion of the screen, people being very familiar with the Feed they first go there and continue their scrolling. After scrolling continues everything fades away out of the screen expect the Feed. And in the static screen, ‘what’s on your mind’ (which is used less often Read the full article…

How to Deliver Web Notifications — Do’s and Don’ts of Different Placements

*This is Part 2 of the blog post series about which notifications will illuminate a visitor’s journey, where to place them on your website, and with which strategy to pair them. Previously, I discussed which types of web notifications visitors want to encounter on their journey towards conversion. Notifications are best accepted when they encourage, help, bring value, have a personal touch to them, are delivered in real-time, and accurately predict a visitor’s behavior. The next goal for the marketer is to figure out how to stitch the visitor’s journey together and declutter their session. We may have a stack of relevant notifications, but how do we deliver and place them so the visitor not only notices them, but also engages? In Part 2 of the blog series around visitor notifications, I discuss where to place notifications on your website, as well as the pros and cons of those placements. I’ll let Read the full article…

8 Web Design Tools to Use in 2018

In the modern web community, there are many tools for web design. There are the classics?—?graphics editors like Photoshop and Sketch?—?and programs that combine both design and layout. In addition to using the main tool, the designer usually uses, as a rule, a number of auxiliary services and tools that simplify the work. Outline2Design team selected a list of the most interesting and useful resources that we got hooked on. Rapid UI RapidUI is the web design platform that allows designers to turn their PSD and Sketch files into fully functional websites without writing a single line of code. Advantages: automated interface development. Each element of design can perform an action. For example, you can easily convert maps into interactive maps, squares into buttons, and background images into parallax. Disadvantages: outdated interface design. However, this is not the most important thing. The big drawback is that the tool does not read layers and overlay Read the full article…

SSE Instead Of WebSockets For Unidirectional Data Flow Over HTTP/2

When building a web application, one must consider what kind of delivery mechanism they are going to use. Let’s say we have a cross-platform application that works with real-time data; a stock market application providing ability to buy or sell stock in real time. This application is composed of widgets that bring different value to the different users. When it comes to data delivery from the server to the client, we are limited to two general approaches: client pull or server push. Read the full article…

A Personal Story About Gaming as Pain Relief

My name is Nathanael, and this is a story about why I play games, what they mean to me, and how they help me to cope with chronic pain. It will be a look back on my life so far, my experience as a gamer, and the games that have helped me. In writing this piece I hope that other people in pain can find some commonalities in what I have to say, and together we can keep looking for new worlds to live in, escape to or in which we can simply spend a few hours away from our worries. (Oh, and just be clear at the outset – in what follows I by no means want to imply that I’ve had the worst or the hardest life. I’ve had amazing opportunities, worked with incredible people, and had a support network that got me where I am today.) Continue Read the full article…

I Haven’t Made a Single Kill in PUBG Yet, but I Love It…

I have not yet bested any opponents, nor do I have any chicken dinners to my name. Hell, I’ve barely fired a weapon in anger outside of the chaotic pre-game lobby but, regardless, I’m new to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and I’m finding it absolutely thrilling. Without a PC powerful enough to run it and a general disinterest in online shooters (with a few exceptions), it’s taken me a long time to come around to the idea of PUBG. Yet, as a big fan of slower-paced, more methodical shooters, such as old-school Ghost Recon and Operation Flashpoint, and the fact that its primary mode allows me to play in isolation, in picking up the (admittedly still-wonky) Xbox One version, I’ve discovered a game that feels like it was tailor-made for a lone-wolf like me.
