So it could have been one of those circumstances.
Another episode of the worlds greatest user experience podcast is available for all our devoted fans. The topic today is notifications. You know you love it when you get a little red number in Facebook or then again you might dread it because the only reason it’s lit up is because of that questionable picture you posted last night while out drinking.
