My Product Observations

WhatsApp Web Privacy Bug
Stalking allowed on WhatsApp Web
  • Did anyone notice that WhatsApp had a bug in their web app. One could see the display pictures of all the people, even if they don't have the contact saved and the other person has kept the setting to 'For contacts only'.
LinkedIn Stories
Shift of real estate from top to middle
  • Unlike Instagram or Facebook, LinkedIn shifted the estate for stories from the top to somewhere after the first scroll. Being at the top, users would never actually care about noticing the stories and start scrolling because of which the engagement would be loss. Now, after shifting it down, users start scrolling as usual but after the first scroll are triggered to have a look at the stories
Toggling Account on LinkedIn
Solving the use case for business and personal accounts
  • Since many users use LinkedIn have both their personal and business accounts, I think LinkedIn should introduce a feature to toggle between the accounts. On Instagram on can easily do it and stay logged in both accounts and get notifications for both. For LinkedIn, one has to actually log out and then log in in new account and vice versa.
Instagram's A/B test
Search button back on the same real estate
  • Looks like Instagram got the answer to its A/B test. The search button is again back in its place and the real button has been moved to the center. The new post button is now at the top left instead of the story button. Swiping right will get you stories or else a new post. Many UI changes done together.
Google Search is now news
Categorized filtering for news
  • Google has these tags and filters to search the news better. I am an avid reader of these Google news articles. This will surely help me search better using filters and look at the content I want to
