The Internet has changed. Most people use most websites differently today from the way they did 5 years ago, which impacts how your website should be designed.
How has the Internet changed?
Here are some of the ways:
- Today’s Internet is explored on hand-held devices
- Today’s Internet is viewed in portrait orientation
- People live on their social media accounts
- People only visit your website for a specific reason
- Attention spans are getting shorter
- Impatience is growing
What does this have to do with your website design?
Everything – because of the impact of social media.
Social media has changed the way people use the Internet. It curates and delivers to users all the information in which they are interested, so they live on their social media accounts.
As a result, people who come to your website do so only because your page headline made an interesting promise in their social media stream.
And if it doesn’t deliver on its promise they’ll hit that back button and be gone.
Your website design needs to adapt to the way people use the Internet today.
But hang on – not all websites are the same. There are still some websites – BBC, CNN, Guardian, Amazon and other eCommerce sites for example – where people search and browse.
We agree and, no matter, we cater for those requirements too – as you can see here.
Abledragon has been building websites since 2009 and, today, we do so with today’s Internet user in mind.
