carousel

Every time I consider putting up a carousel on a property, I remind myself just how horrible of an experience every carousel I’ve ever used has been. Not to mention, there is no standard implementation out there that is immediately user-friendly as an interface.

Today a friend sent me to http://shouldiuseacarousel.com. I recommend bookmarking it to visit every time you think adding a carousel is a good idea.

‚ÄúCarousels are effective at being able to tell people in Marketing/Senior Management that their latest idea is on the Home Page. Use them to put content that users will ignore on your Home Page.”

Yep.
