March UX Book Club

Our book for March is Design to Thrive: Creating Social Networks and Online Communities That Last, by Tharon Howard.

design to thrive

Social networks and online communities are reshaping the way people communicate, both in their personal and professional lives. What makes some succeed and others fail? What draws a user in? What makes them join? What keeps them coming back? Entrepreneurs and businesses are turning to user experience practitioners to figure this out. Though they are well-equipped to evaluate and create a variety of interfaces, social networks require a different set of design principles and ways of thinking about the user in order to be successful.

Look for Design to Thrive at Booko.com.au or Fishpond.com.au for the best prices. Morgan Kaufmann offer an ebook subscription for 5 users for $41 too.

We’re looking forward to a great year for UX Book Club, we hope you can join us for the first one!
