A seamless user experience (UX) is one of the most important factors for website success, but most websites nowadays display annoying pop-ups that ask you to enable notifications, accept cookies, follow them on social media, subscribe to their newsletter, etc.
Most of these pop-ups just end up diverting the user’s attention for a few seconds before they hit the close button. What most website owners don’t realise is that if users are genuinely interested in your content, you won’t need pop-ups to get them to follow you.
Poking fun at these intrusive UI elements, YouTube channel UX Live has come up with a hilarious 30-second animated clip that shows what most websites look like nowadays. Watch below.
