October Webinette – Tips on Mobile Taxonomies

We hope you were able to join us for our tablet webinette last week. If not, check out our webinette page where it’s live now. To continue our tablet and mobile webinette series in preparation for MMCF, we’ll be hosting a webinette in October. We’ll be discussing mobile taxonomies and how they affect users. Join us on October 2 to learn some valuable information.  Check out the full synopsis below and sign up!

The advent of smartphones and mobile web browsers has forced designers and developers to face a tough choice: How similar should a mobile site be to its full-site companion?  Too similar, and the site suffers from attempting to force users into a desktop mentality, while too different, and users become confused and the site feels foreign.  One of the most important considerations in this regard is how to handle a site’s taxonomy.  Will users be expected to navigate a full site’s numerous dropdowns and fly-outs, or will users will be presented a customized layout?  Join us for some tips and best practices regarding taxonomies on a mobile site.
