Sauce vs. Cereal.
I think the point I was making poorly was that I use emojis in context of a personal relationship, with friends, coworkers, family, etc. Typically it is to humanize the message, not as a technique to try to convince someone that I'm very fun and relatable as in many websites or platforms that don't have that 1:1 human contact.
I think I was just confused about the purpose of the site and expected something else.
What are plans for future content types?
In a lot of cases it reads like "How do you do, fellow kids?" to me. Or a little HAL 9000.
The point of emojis is to convey emotion, and while they work on websites the same, 99% of the time I'm interacting with emojis is in the context of talking to a real person. When confronted with them on the web it just feels forced to me. I don't mind them, but they always just seem like a copout. Keep in mind my web use often has me on business sites that are inherently impersonal.
I wonder how much changing the wording on the call to actions made a difference compared to changing the styles around. 'Get Started', 'Purchase Now', and 'Try for free' are all very different.
Also the plan types went from 1 for personal use and 3 for teams, to 3 for personal (and can't see the tab for teams), to finally 2 for personal and 2 for teams.
I think those changes are also pretty telling and I bet a big reason for the metrics swings if I'm just going off the article and the screenshot comparisons.
Just because you think it happened doesn't mean that it did.
What exactly are you having an issue with between the two?
It's a chunky cursive logotype with an underline, and they share one letter. I wouldn't be sweating too much over it.
Guilty. I try to avoid this nowadays.
Just like language, the web evolves over time. Whether something is proper or not, it can still be aight.
