Taking the persona discussion in a different direction. I have been
thinking lately, along the lines of how we can take advantage of the
social networking sites to develop a more realistic persona.
While this is not intended to replace the one-on-one interview to
observe and gather goals, it can be an effective
tool when it comes to humanizing the users.
What of the usability of this new look? What of the spacing? Is it
efficient? Are the tabs necessary? Or did you like to, with just one
look, understand a person's personal and professional life completely?
More importantly, with the myriad of complaints of said new design,
will this bring the downfall of Facebook here in the US? Into the
halls of history along with Tribe, Friendster, Orkut?
