Food for thought ~ the only real thing is the content [urge ti read McLuhan again] ~ the internet of things: are really objects intelligent as they say? ~ The emergence of a new super-organism that we are not completely aware of ~ the power of collective intelligence and the role of social media. Not sure the picure is really exciting... as they say - objects exist only when we use them, but it rather seems that we exist only of we use objects and interact with objects and (social) networks.

Shopping Within Images On Twitter And Facebook - PSFK

Shopping Within Images On Twitter And Facebook - PSFK | Usability and User Experience | Scoop.it

A new social commerce tool called Stipple Shopping lets sellers make sales through picture sharing on networks like Facebook and Twitter. When brands debut new products, they can share a photo of it on social media and consumers looking at the post can make an in-line purchase directly from the photo.

 

Stipple Shopping enables consumers to explore, compare and buy products all within a photo. They can view multiple product options and promotional material from the same screen.

 

The tool will be available in-stream on Twitter and Facebook, and in-line on leading websites. Instead of needing to open multiple browsers to look at and compare products, consumers will have all the information they require to make purchase decisions in one place.

 

Brands can drive real revenue through images and the process is fully scalable and automated, with no product tagging required. Consumers can look at multiple images and videos, select different colors, and view related products, before making a purchase through the safe and secure platform for payments.

Jean Schiller's insight:

New tool that could have interesting elements in the user experience.  I'd love to see user testing on this.

10 tips about responsive website design - Internet Marketing Blog | Usability and User Experience | Scoop.it

Mashable has called 2013 the year of responsive design and with the mobile internet usage to be taking off, their prediction is probably correct. But what is a responsive design? A change in the design CSS code allows it to be view able at a desktop/laptop, mobile and tablet devices. You do not need a mobile site anymore; all you need is a responsive website design.

 

Responsive design provides seamless branding experience across all devices and costs much less to implement than a mobile site.
