Not to play Diggnation or anything, but I was scrolling through Digg due to shear boredom, and found a very interesting post. It was about how fast a human’s brain decides whether or not it likes something, and in this particular case, websites.
This fascinated me because I’ve heard things like this before, but just didn’t know any actual stats.
“Like the look of our website? Whatever the answer (and hopefully it was yes), the chances are you made your mind up within the first twentieth of a second. A study by researchers in Canada has shown that the snap decisions Internet users make about the quality of a web page have a lasting impact on their opinions.”
Pretty interesting huh?
The full story.
