Doing some research on what is hot and what is not, I was inspired to add a new section to the home page for this site: Usability in the News.
The section will have links to two leading stories or articles that are about web usability or design. Content will be semi-periodic, at least once a week.
Keeping it brief, the research I was doing revealed a breakdown of popular websites by industry. Ordered by importance here are the top 10.
- Social Media – sites like Facebook, Twitter, and blogging environments
- Search Engines
- Multimedia – Video and music
- Services – Banks, Netflix
- Portals – ISP home pages
- Image hosts
- Review Sites
