Users are resistant to change

Users are resistant to change

Twitter recently rolled out a new redesign and was met with backlash from most users.

This is because users automatically navigate interfaces that are used for a long time. In a way, navigation is similar to a routine, a habit, and when the interface design changes, the user navigation habits must change as well.

This increases cognitive load and can reduce user satisfaction with the product.

Familiarity bias and Endowment effect

Familiarity bias is another reason people dislike redesigns. It refers to a mental phenomenon where people opt for the more familiar options, even though these often result in less favorable outcomes than available alternatives.

The Endowment Effect could also be a reason how people tend to assign a greater value to an object that they own, rather than an object that they don’t. In the case of the redesign, this phenomenon can lead users to prefer the existing version.

Ways to improve the way users experience the redesign

  • Allowing people to opt-in to changes when the redesigned version is introduced. This gives users a feeling of control and can make them more amendable towards the changes even if they don’t opt-in. 
  • Radical redesigns should be avoided whenever possible. Make small incremental changes Previous studies have found that small changes are usually not observed when people behave habitually.
  • Preparing the users for the upcoming changes is crucial. Creating expectations can make users more likely to adapt to the changes and accept the redesign. Apple has been doing this for years.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
