Stream Airbnb's Design Approach by O'Reilly Radar from desktop or your mobile device
At Facebook, analytics play a critical role in informing design decisions, but internally there's a wariness of the idea of design by numbers.
In this talk we'll hear about three primary ways Facebook uses quantitative data: • Optimizing small but important interactions • Finding pain points in existing work flows • Setting high level success metrics for large projects
Some things are difficult, or maybe even impossible, to quantify. Currently, the design team works to optimize for both the user and the network, and though these two are not mutually exclusive they are not always perfectly inline.
We'll hear Facebook's take on how they think they should improve their ability to quantify some of the less tangible data points, like brand perception and long term network value. Those analytics can begin to perform as counter metrics so that they can begin to rely less heavily on instinct, which is important but sometimes fallible.

Facebook’s “like” and “share” buttons are seen 22 billion times a day, making them some of the most-viewed design elements ever created. Margaret Gould Stewart, Facebook’s director of product design, outlines three rules for design at such a massive scale—one so big that the tiniest of tweaks can cause global outrage, but also so large that the subtlest of improvements can positively impact the lives of many.

Comedian Marc Maron is tackling the most complex philosophical question of our day - WTF? He'll get to the bottom of it with help from comedian friends, celebrity guests and the voices in his own head. You loved him on Morning Sedition. You kinda liked him on The Marc Maron Show. You tolerated him on Break Room Live. Now, embrace him on a show from which he cannot be fired - WTF with Marc Maron.
