StumbleUpon Gets a Facelift: Nips, Tucks, and a Streamlined UI

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos jolie odell Starting today, social bookmarking service StumbleUpon is allowing users to beta test a shiny, happy redesign of their site.The new interface is streamlined and more social with an updated relationship system. A focus on consistency (e.g., limiting user control of visual elements) and removal of clutter (e.g., presenting tags in a drop-down menu rather than a cloud) characterize the design changes made. Also, a few tweaks to group sharing were made to help reduce share-spam.The most significant UX changes have occured in the way friendships and subscriptions work on the site. Friends are now called Mutual Subscribers with mutual Direct-Sharecapabilities. According to the FAQ, “The Friends category… has a new shape in the new interface. Your friends… are now the equivalent of Stumblers that you are subscribed to and can mutually share sites with from your toolbar… Look for the ‘two-way’ icon under their avatars. If the icon is there, it means you can mutually share sites with each other.”The “Favorites” tab has been renamed “All” and includes every site a user ever liked, including multimedia content. Similarly, the “What’s New” page, which displays sites a user’s friends and subscriptions reviewed, has been renamed “Recent Activity.”In the new interface, shares are found in the main Discover tab and display the list of sites that were sent to a user by mutual subscribers with direct-share permission. Soon, the site will display sent as well as received shares.The once-retired Similarity Meter, a diagram showing a users’ Favorites similarity with other users, is being resurrected. And by popular demand, group shares will no longer be available in bulk; users will have to select other users within groups to share items with them. Tags:#Social Bookmarking#web Users are able to toggle back and forth between the beta redesign and the old site design over the next month. “To switch back to the old look,” the site says, “simply click on the Beta link located on the main navbar (see image below) and on the following screen click the Leave Beta button. To return to the new interface, use the link Click here and try the new StumbleUpon! located at the top of all pages in the old view.” Related Posts center_img A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Design changes that limit user choice in favor of overall site consistency are threefold: List view rather than a grid view is the default for all profiles. In contrast to the 22 background colors once available, a mere seven of the most popular color themes are now being offered for profile customization. And the visual editor has been scrapped. “Rest assured,” the site reads, “we are still working on making sure all your past blog entries look good in the new interface. Some text customization will still be allowed.“Our goal is not to limit your creativity, but to place emphasis on content and ensure a consistent user experience.” An admirable aim, indeed; we think StumbleUpon is working in a good direction with these changes.We also admire the new drop-down menu for tags:last_img read more

World Cup failure prompts calls for US soccer ‘revolution’

first_img“There’s nothing wrong with what we’re doing,” he maintained. “Certainly I think as our league continues to grow, it benefits the national team program. We have some good young players coming up. Nothing has to change. To make any kind of crazy changes I think would be foolish. We’re building a good system in our professional league. We have players playing abroad of some quality. There’s enough there.” LATEST STORIES “You don’t have wholesale changes based on the ball being 2 inches wide or 2 inches in,” he said. “We will look at everything, obviously, and all of our programs, both the national team and all the development stuff. But we’ve got a lot of pieces in place that we think are very good and have been coming along.”The U.S. returned to the World Cup in 1990 after a 40-year absence, and soccer grew at an exponential rate, helped by the U.S. hosting the tournament in 1994. Major League Soccer launched two years later; cable television and the Internet brought top European clubs to American televisions and later laptops and cell phones.European clubs discovered there was huge money to be made by playing preseason exhibitions across the pond, growing the sport’s audience.American sponsors started treating soccer like a major sport, if not at the level of the NFL, baseball and the NBA, at least as prominent as the NHL, golf and tennis.Still, the national team peaked with its quarterfinal appearance at the 2002 World Cup. The U.S. failed to qualify for the 2012 and 2016 men’s Olympic soccer tournaments, a generational talent gap evident when a creaky defense repeatedly broke down during qualifying. There were no young goalkeepers considered challengers to Howard and Brad Guzan.“This has been coming for a while. I think it’s just kind of been building up,” former U.S. defender Marcelo Balboa said Wednesday.Elected head of the USSF in 2006 after a quarter-century helping build the national team and federation, Gulati has not said whether he will seek a fourth and final four-year term in February.More immediately, a decision must be made on whether the national team plays exhibitions during the November fixture dates and who will coach. Bruce Arena, brought back when Jurgen Klinsmann was fired last November after a 0-2 start in the hexagonal, figures to depart later this year or next.Among the possible American candidates are Tab Ramos, coach of the U.S. under-20 team since 2011; Peter Vermes, coach of Sporting Kansas City since 2009; and Huddersfield manager David Wagner. Atlanta United’s Tata Martino, a former coach of Argentina and Barcelona, is among the foreigners who could be considered. An interim coach is a possibility.Surprisingly, Arena said no major shifts need to be made in the federation’s operations. Read Next “Unacceptable,” tweeted former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala, a U.S. Soccer Federation board member. “For us in USSoccer more than a wake-up call. Time for revolution. Need long term plan that is smart.”After American soccer’s Waterloo, the fallout almost surely will lead to a new coach and possibly a new USSF head. There also figure to be calls for a reexamination of the player development structure, from youth teams through academies designed with the hope of producing elite prospects.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“There is no denying that this is a setback for all of us involved with the game in our country,” Major League Soccer said in a statement.New York Cosmos owner Rocco Commisso, chairman of the lower-level North American Soccer League that has sued the USSF, called for federation President Sunil Gulati to resign along with board members and senior administrators he put in place. LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH “In the almost 12 years during which Sunil Gulati has been the USSF’s president, little or nothing has been done to enhance our prospects,” Commisso said in a statement. “The leadership of U.S. Soccer has failed all of its stakeholders: players, fans, sponsors and those of us who have invested in professional soccer. Getting back on track requires fundamental change in the structure and management of the sport in our country, starting with a change in the federation’s leadership.”While fans fulminated over the front office, the next national team coach must instigate a ruthless roster purge. The Tim Howard/Clint Dempsey/Michael Bradley era is over, and pretty much any player older than 26 will be past his past his prime when the World Cup in Qatar kicks off in November 2022. The Americans won’t even play a competitive match for nearly two years, until the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup.By then, Christian Pulisic, at 19 already the top American, should be surrounded with other players on the rise, such as 19-year-old midfielder Weston Mckennie, who has started Schalke’s last three games in the German Bundesliga.

Marcelo remains silent on Juventus links

first_imgReal Madrid’s Marcelo has refused to comment on speculation linking him with a surprise reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo at JuventusThe Portuguese star made the shock decision last month to end his trophy-laden nine-year spell at Real in favour of a new challenge and fresh environment at Juventus for this season.But since Ronaldo begun his pre-season training program alongside his new teammates in Turin, reports have emerged in Italy suggesting that the 33-year-old has asked the club board to sign Marcelo.Together the duo won four Champions League titles at Real and formed a close friendship with each other.Maurizio Sarri, JuventusMaurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.But speaking ahead to Real’s derby showdown with Atletico Madrid in today’s UEFA Super Cup, Marcelo remained silent on the subject.“I’m not going to comment on my future, I’m just here to talk about the UEFA Super Cup,” said the Brazilian on the club website.Juventus’ own left-back Alex Sandro has been linked himself with a €50m exit this summer.last_img read more

Napoli have adjusted to Ancelottis style Sheva

first_imgAndriy Shevchenko believes Napoli players are adapting well to the style of his old Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti.Ancelotti took over after three years of Maurizio Sarri and is transforming their tactics from 4-3-3 to a versatile 4-4-2.“I like Carlo’s team, as they are competitive and Ancelotti has changed a few things with great wisdom,” Sheva told Football Italia via La Gazzetta dello Sport.Sacchi explains Sarri, Conte, and Ancelotti Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Arrigo Sacchi talked about how Sarri has a tougher time at Juventus than Conte at Inter; while Ancelotti’s “blood is boiling” at Napoli.Arrigo Sacchi…“Now Napoli are starting to play in his style, so this all confirms what we’ve known for a while: Carlo is an intelligent man and that is his greatest strength. He never gets swept away or distraught, he always maintains his balance.“Having said that, I struggle to see anyone prevent Juventus from taking the Scudetto again. The gap is too big, but they can work towards next season.”Napoli are currently in the hunt for the title but are likely to settle for a top-four finish with Juve running away with the title.last_img read more
