Design principle: IKEA effect
Anton Nikolov

Very interesting article! But, I wanted to ask you, shouldn’t it be the “optimal level of effort” (not “low” effort)? You reminded me of the notion of ‘flow’: you have to find the correct proportion between skill and task difficulty level to not only attract but eventually sustain people’s interest and engagement. I find this assumption to be even more valid in the digital realm, as in contrast to physical products (such as IKEA furniture). What do you think?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
