Facebook’s UX is killing the “home” button

Are these statements you’re making based on data? Can you quote the source?

  • “In Facebook no one looks at the Buy section.”
  • “In Instagram people don’t take pictures, they just add pictures they took on their camera app.”
  • “In Messenger no one uses the My Day camera feature.”
  • “In WhatsApp no one uses the camera button.”

Also, when you point to the navigation inconsistency across Facebook products: “The bottom navigation mess across Facebook’s apps = no consistency + changing hierarchies”

Do you think people expect consistency between brands they don’t necessarily know are related (e.g. Facebook and Instagram, Facebook and Whatsapp)? What’s the data source for this?

As a designer you certainly know a lot of these decisions are based on data – especially at Facebook. Do you have any data to support these arguments, or is this just destructive feedback?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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