A nice starter article that introduces the benefits of User Experience to anyone who has a website to take care of! ‪#‎usability‬ ‪#‎ux‬ ‪#‎userexperience‬ 
Great user experience does not simply come from what you think. Your users dictate what you need to do in order to guarantee a successful online presence.

A bit of a controversial topic today - do you think that Marquees will make a comeback just like animated GIFs or should they remain in the history museum of the web? #usability #ux #webdesign
Marquees were very popular in the early days of the web and persisted for several years. Now that animated GIFs made a comeback, will marquees do the same?
