Sometimes I surf across good and bad interaction techniques on the web so I thought I would start an ongoing list of the three types I mention in the title. I'll keep adding to this post as I discover more interesting web interaction of any kind.
This one always annoys me - I call it the "click of no return". So you see an ad for something you have an interest in, and you click on it and you see the following:
This was embedded in a newsletter I get every week outlining events around my community. Hooked by "Jaw-dropping prices" I bit and was taken to the Ruelala website where you get a tease of product for a second when the following dialog is displayed:
Notice something missing? Where's the "X" to close the dialog? And clicking off the dialog area does nothing. There's no way to close the dialog and look at the products UNLESS you give an email address. Dark web stuff here.
End result - I closed the web page and moved on. Ruelala lost a potential customer by using strong-arm tactics to get my email address. Please, I want to look at what you have to offer before I give you my information. I don't walk into shops blindfolded yelling out my name so they can take the blindfold off to let me see the goods!
