Stop for a moment to consider this – a Facebook ‘Like’ for a business or brand is now estimated to be worth approximately £110 in cold, hard cash – or to be ‘exact’ $174.17USD. The days of passing off Facebook as ‘one for the kids to play with’ or ‘just an endless feed of cute (or weird) cat pictures are long gone and consumer-facing businesses which aren’t harnessing its power are now, at best missing a large opportunity and, at worst, at risk of being completely left behind.

With the online landscape as crowded as it’s ever been, competition to stand out, get recognised, properly engage an audience and keep them coming back, is stronger than ever.

Why adopt psychology-based Design
When designing for the web, considering the psychological drives of a target audience is not commonly a high priority. It can however have surprisingly positive effects on how users will utilise a website, how engaged they will become and how frequently they will respond to calls-to-action.
By paying attention to how visitors will naturally wish to engage with information and providing them with an online environment which appeals to their conscious, and sometimes unconscious, inclinations, they will be happier and far more likely to perform the actions you want them to, whether that’s getting in touch with you, buying your product, or referring their friends.

With the release of Windows 8 there have been changes with the way you install Flash on Internet Explorer. Basically Flash is now preinstalled on the operating system and you do not need to update it via Internet Explorer.
