Ello is put to the test by UserTesting.com
Someone mentioned in the comments that Ello is a new and experimental platform, as such there will be some difficulties with new users getting used to the interface. My take is that, yes, it is new, it is experimental but it is also very nearly unusable. When you are trying to build a social network, it should be an easy onboarding process and also the user should find the interface easy and intuitive. It's hard to be social when one can't easily figure out how to share. That's the and butter of any social interaction. I am eager to see how the changes roll out and how improvements will be made. And honestly, I'm hoping for the best because I think the Ello users are excited for change, excited to start anew knowing all the lessons we've learned from Facebook. I'm hungry for a new online space to connect and share on a deeper and more positive level with my fellow Ello compatriots. Only time will tell.
