Web Design in 2017

Web Design is Now Component Based Software Design

Web design in the modern era involves building components from top programming languages like AngularJS.  Creating components that can be used in large-scale, and responsive applications requires engineers’ and UI designers to put together different components into a code base.  Today html5 is used to create modern web and mobile applications.  Html5 is the skeleton of these applications, and programming languages like AngularJS and ReactJS, C#, Java and other traditional object-oriented programming languages are used to give the software functionality.  AngularJS and AngularJS work together to enable advanced styling of modern html5 applications that can work in various places without constant issues and troubleshooting from it teams.

Today skilled and successful developers are quickly able to take software components and put them together, collaboratively, to make agile software that is can be improved over many years and becomes more efficient over time.  Software developers that are on top of modern UI/UX strategies can easily build responsive components on top of htm5 templates, which are styled with the newest and best styling technologies, removing the time and need for tacky and incompetent web designers that are from the the late 90’s.  With the new boom in technology, as New York works hard to parallel Silicon Valley, developers that can quickly and artfully assemble complicated software using high-tech are in great demand.

Web design is a field that is extinct, and has been taken over by engineering. Engineering technology for people who need to use it quickly without errors is the job of software developers in major fortune 500 companies.  Building and testing this technology is a process which the world’s most talented engineers work on for many hours a day, and the advanced, complex softwares the build have in 2017 taken over the web.  Major website development in NYC is now about engineering, and tacky and lousy web designers are fading from the mainstream market, as engineers from the valley crowd into the tech alley. New York’s Google building in Chelsea is a great example of this transformation that the world is undergoing, as major tech companies buy space in downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn.

NYC is now a major hub for tech and software developers.  In a the next few years, major Silicon valleys will crowd into downtown Manhattan as tech goes to places where it can never go back, changing the entire climate of America’s metropolitan city.

Old and crummy WordPress websites vie for a place like unwanted garbage inside America’s major cities, as talented software developers quickly transform the new rocket economy building lightning speed components, which look classier and sleeker than ever before.

The new era requires web designers which are talented in industrial UX/UI design, and can “put stuff together that works”.  Software development is a collaborative effort in 2017 that doesn’t look fondly upon short-cuts and cheap fixes, but beautiful, streamlined work that shows workmanship and dedication.  Real clients are willing to pay big money for these real projects.

Pinterest vs Tumblr

     

 

          Pinterest and Tumblr are considered curatorial social spaces, according to the NY Times, with the additional blog component for Tumblr. But after the Yahoo buyout of Tumblr, it’s following has become stagnant while Pinterest is coming up strong and predicted to soon rival Twitter in its amount of handlers. Social media has been around for decades but has only started trending now, which means out with the old blog spaces and in with the new real time one sentence life update.

 

 

          Google is the leading data search engine with the ability to image search as well, but while Google has the literal answer for image keywords, Pinterest has the creative answer for users with aesthetics in mind.

The great thing about Tumblr is that it effectively combines a variety of image content under a number of tags that is seen worldwide, and with gaining a following they can choose to get to know you personally via opinion blogs and messages.

 

Forbes Magazine recently did a study on the top four networking applications ranking Facebook ($170 billion), Twitter ($23 billion in stock), and Linkdin ($20 billion) as the top three but Pinterest ($5 billion) is climbing fast in popularity. It’s estimated to go head to head with Twitter in the next year. Surveys say that many of the users are identified females, myself included, but it has no target gender, and male identified users are testing the waters more and more.

 

I recently became a Pinterest convert. I was previously a Tumblr addict adamantly resisting the fact that something new could be better than Tumblr.My partner recommended Pinterest to me because I missed the visual inspiration I got from Tumblr but without the time investment needed to search and sort in comparison to Tumblr and Google.

 

 

          Pinterest brings to the table immediate satisfaction in all things visually pleasing to the eye, the interface allows for quicker browsing and more exploration in order to create personal mood boards in which others can view or you can choose to hide.

 

It’s an excellent time waster without the feeling of wasting time and its impersonal unlike a lot of other networking social media sites whose main focus is  blogging to meet people.

                                

I’ve been through many networking blogs from Xanga to Livejournal, to Myspace each with a target audience and it’s funny to see how they grow and decay leaving way for new social enterprises.

New Google+ Data Shows Weak User Engagement

 

facebook vs google

 

Larry Page called Google+ the company’s social spine.  With a letter published from Larry, http://investor.google.com/corporate/2012/ceo-letter.html. Diving deeper info Google+, they have a long way to go before they can even make facebook sweat.

Here are some findings from RJ Metrics:

  • The average post has less than one +1, less than one reply, and less than one re-share.
  • 30% of users who make a public post never make a second one. Even after making five public posts, there is a 15% chance that a user will not post publicly again.
  • Among users who make publicly-viewable posts, there is an average of 12 days between each post
  • cohort analysis reveals that, after a member makes a public post, the average number of public posts they make in each subsequent month declines steadily. This trend is not improving in newer cohorts.

From what we can see from the outside looking in, Google+ has a long way to go before it becomes a real threat to the social networking landscape. While user growth is strong, it is unclear how much of that is driven by tie-ins with other Google products.

At the end of the day, Google Plus simply does not show the same level of ravenous user adoption and engagement that we’ve seen in other social networks (see our reports on Pinterest Data and Twitter Data for examples).
