While I have a slight aversion to some forms of social media, details of their sites still catch my attention.
Facebook recently added this picture when you have successfully logged out. It’s not much, but it’s delightful, to begrudgingly admit. This is an effort to humanize the social media experience. Social media yes, interacting with people, but our interactions are abstracted behind a machine. No matter how immersive user experience is, the moment that device is put to sleep, the experience is gone until the next notification (and even then said notification could have been programatically generated).
After all that, I find it personally effective.
Maybe I lack some sort of intimacy or some outlet to express intimacy, but that’s for another story.
