Teens + Social Networking

Teens + Social Networking | The Future of Web Design and Development | Scoop.it
It seems that Facebook is coming to terms with the fact that teenagers are fickle and are unlikely to stay interested in anything for long – even Facebook.
Liveti Liiveti's insight:

A quote from the source that predicts what social networking will need to revert to in order to stay relevant:

 

This technology is likely to improve over the next 5 – 10 years to the point where relevance is assessed not only by your profile and interests but your actual needs. For normal users, the technology would allow them to have content selected for them and sharing tailored to people who would actually want to see the content. So teenagers posting pictures of drunken parties would automatically hide this content from family – especially parents.

Websites: Then and Now

Websites: Then and Now | The Future of Web Design and Development | Scoop.it
Most of us probably got our Internet connection somewhere 10 years back. It was also around that time we seen the sudden boom on Internet, thanks to Marc Andreessen and Netscape Communicator.

 

Most of us probably got our Internet connection somewhere 10 years back. It was also around that time we seen the sudden boom on Internet, thanks to Marc Andreessen and Netscape Communicator. Now that we are almost at the end of 2008, we thought it’s pretty interesting to look back at how some of the trend setters and the most trafficked websites were like 10 years back.

Here are some of the top-tier brands of the tech industries and their websites have stayed on the Internet for more than a decade. Let’s take a look at how these websites look like 10 years ago, comparing with that it is now. Full list after jump.

Liveti Liiveti's insight:

Having images of websites then and websites now is such a great way to indicate how far websites have come. Everything has evolved from the user inteface to the content management, from the types of multimedia used to the navigation; everything has evolved.

 

Great read!

Responsive Example

Responsive Example | The Future of Web Design and Development | Scoop.it

What is it?

PhotoSwipe is a FREE HTML/CSS/JavaScript based image gallery specifically targeting mobile devices.

Who is it for?

Developers and designers requiring an interactive image gallery on their mobile website with the look and feel of a native app.

Why use it?

PhotoSwipe provides your visitors with a familiar and intuitive interface allowing them to interact with images on your mobile website.

Liveti Liiveti's insight:

Thought I'd include a prime example of responsive design and a visual model of how it works.

 

This is Photoswipe, a responsive design tool that has been included in Mashable's article '85 Top Responsive Design Tools (http://mashable.com/2013/03/18/web-design-tools/?amp;utm_source=newsletter?utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter), it pretty much is an interface that allows swiping and slideshows.

 

It may not be a web design example but it emphasises responsive design, an element that I see will soon takeover web design and development.

Web 3.0 ?

Web 3.0 ? | The Future of Web Design and Development | Scoop.it
Web 2.0 is the terminology assigned to define websites that have been refurbished from an earlier version of the internet.

 

Since most Web 2.0 features are free, websites such as Facebook, Wikipedia, etc. have developed remarkably fast and, as these sites grow, more innovative features are being added using new technologies. In fact, Web 2.0 will continue to grow in the future. 

 

The simultaneous growth of these new trends is outside the scope of Web 2.0’s definition and this is where the next generation of the internet will begin. The third generation of the internet – the Web 3.0 – will completely alter social networking.

 

‘Web 3.0’ is a network of information that can be routed both directly or indirectly using computers and includes television quality video, three dimensional reproductions of images, enhanced reality, man-made semantic barometers, and the all-encompassing sensors – wireless and broadband.

Liveti Liiveti's insight:

With the evergrowing usage of social networking and video sharing mediums by contemporary society, it was inevitable that such an idea as Web 3.0 would be brought up. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. have some form of impact on everyone's daily lives. I myself constantly check my Facebook news feed, sadly even once every 5 minutes. This article states that the idea of Web 3.0 'will completely alter social networking', this is something that I will anxiously await to see. How will the general public react to such alterations? Will it be too much of a jump?

 

Facebook changes, such as the conversion from profile views to timelines (http://mashable.com/2012/02/07/dislike-facebook-timeline/) and the introduction of Graph Search (http://maximizesocialmedia.com/social-media-agencygraph-it-facebooks-graph-search-the-future-of-social-media), have been met with some very negative reviews. Many have panned these changes as they have been so accustomed to previous versions.

 

Web 3.0 will completely alter social networking, but is that a good thing?

GwynethJones's curator insight, March 9, 2013 11:46 AM

from the best digital curator I know! Fascinating!

Adam Woodbridge's curator insight, March 27, 2014 2:55 AM

As computers and software progress, so does the internet. Millions of people use the internet everyday and it has to be improved constantly. Web 3.0 is the next level of internet which will be a greater tool than Web 2.0 is at gathering and producing information, and connecting people. 

Derek Phillips's curator insight, March 28, 2014 6:44 AM

Due to the web rapidly grows in both users and content, it has, for many people, become a part of everyday life, whether it be in the workplace or for personal use. As a result of this, it is essential to improve the capability and resources available publicly through the web. This is being done within Web 3.0.

Responsive Future

Responsive Future | The Future of Web Design and Development | Scoop.it
Guest post written by Igor Faletski Igor Faletski is CEO of Mobify, which provides tools for adapting Web sites for smartphones and tablets.  Carin van Vuuren wrote a guest post last month for Forbes.com criticizing the responsive design approach...
Liveti Liiveti's insight:

Reading both this article and the article it responded to, I must say this is the one I agree with.

 

Not only is social networking rapidly taking over the world but so are the multiple devices a user owns. From smartphones to tablets, iPods to notebooks, PC's to laptops, one can find at least one of these in the everyday middle class home.

 

And as this article states, past instances of responsive design have worked successfully. From examples such as Obama's campaign to Disney, responsive design will make its mark in the web design and development industry in 5 to 10 years.

Adam Woodbridge's curator insight, March 27, 2014 3:01 AM

The main methods we use today to create web sites, are not able to display information on every device which we use today; such as smartphones and tablets. With responsive webpages, all users on a huge variety of devices have easy access which is definitely the next level of Web Design.

Responsive Example: CSS

View the demo pages and get links to related resources at http://zomigi.com/blog/future-css-layout-fowd

Liveti Liiveti's insight:

The Future of CSS Layout shows how to use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to cater to the number of different sized devices used to access websites.

 

This is just another prime example of responsive design. The future of web design and development should depend on responsive design because the boom of mobile devices will only grow.

Idea: How We Will Interact

Vid i found that tells what computers will look like in year 2020
Liveti Liiveti's insight:

Just an idea of 'Computers of the Future', although it doesn't specifically target web design and development, it can impact it greatly.

 

The IT industry has taken any device used to access the web and have developed ways to cater it. Tablets, iPods etc, regardless of size and type, accessing the web is simple.

 

So with this idea of a Pen PC, no doubt will web developers target this.

 

Maybe designing websites to recognise the Pen PC and use as a mouse or even a controller. With the idea of a hologram keyboard, maybe even hologram websites and/or web features. Video sharing websites like YouTube or Dailymotion can present videos in hologram form. The ideas are endless and it is ideas like these that can effect not only the web design and development field but information technology as a whole.

Web design trends for 2013

Web design trends for 2013 | The Future of Web Design and Development | Scoop.it

Predicting the future is always a risky venture, and there is no precise method that allows you to define the future trends of web design. But… we can try. ;)

 

We’ve determined the directions of web design based on our observation of what types of design solutions are gaining popularity. Many web design trends occur due to changes in: technology, market, fashion, pop culture and art. But first, let’s take a quick look back at 2012 and see what trends are on the rise.


Via Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com, juandoming
Liveti Liiveti's insight:

This scoop presents web design trends in 2012 and what can be in 2013. It is difficult to make predictions of the trends for 2018 onwards but nonetheless I can see the old-fashioned navigation toolbar put to rest.

 

Like the scoop says, "we are seeing very sophisticated navigations — main menus are being reduced, sometimes disappearing completely or sliding behind screen edges." Five years time, I can see all websites using sophisticated graphical navigations, with the toolbar slowly fading away.

 

The Swiss design has taken the web design world by storm with the introduction of Windows 8. So with that, I believe that many other platforms, software and even websites will adopt this graphic design style.

 

Other predictions see that Flash will completely become redundant and screen resolutions will continue to grow with mobile devices and tablets.

Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com's curator insight, February 23, 2013 11:47 AM

This article is packed full of information on some of the ternds of we saw in 2012 and will be built upon in 2013. The article highlights from many examples of trends that can make your website unique among others.


Before any business begins builds their website they need to sit down with their website designer and go over the goals they hope to achieve with their site. Design can play him major part in achieving goals.

Evolution of HTML

Evolution of HTML | The Future of Web Design and Development | Scoop.it

This HTML Evolution infographic takes a look at the transformation of web pages over the past 20 years, from HTML 1.0 to HTML 5.0. Prior to then, we’re just going to assume everyone played pong :D

 

Continue: http://broadcast.rackspace.com/blog/HTMLtimeline/index.html

Liveti Liiveti's insight:

The previous video looked at the history of the Internet, this link looks at the history of HTML (the main mark up language used to create websites).

 

It is amazing how far HTML has evolved in a short time period of 20 years. Who knows, maybe in 5 to 10 years, the HTML 6.0 or even 7.0 will have been released.

Derek Phillips's curator insight, March 28, 2014 5:51 AM

While similar to the previous info-graphic, this focuses almost entirely on HTML (and XHTML), other components mentioned would be browsers, and the use of Ajax. Also, there is a prediction for the future (albeit portrayed in a more humorous manner) which relates to the cloud, being a growing aspect of network based computing today.

Liveti Liiveti's insight:

Before diving into what the future will hold in 5 to 10 years, its good to have an understanding of how we got to where we are today.

 

This video is not only highly informative but it also engages viewers with its animated approach.
