Web Sites for Teens
Wired News has an article that summarizes new findings from the Nielsen Norman Group on what teens look for in web site design. You can purchase the $149 report or read Jakob Nielsen’s Alertbox which summarizes its findings. A few things to consider:
- Don’t make text small.
- Provide interactivity.
- Use photographs and images so that they don’t see blocks of just text.
- Invest in presentation.
The article provides URLs of sites that are considered “teen-friendly.” Very interesting if your audience is primarily teens.
