The LA Times has, this very morning, released a site update. We were given some idea what to expect from Eddy Hartenstein’s email, detailing responsive design, image-centric journalism. So far, so now, so what?
Happily, the new site looks good. Slick, cool, and of the time, which, as shallow as it sounds, does mean something to users. Outdated websites are just a bit depressing to use and also reflect badly on the company. So this is good. I will discuss each of the features in more detail, but the first glaring, searing observation is the dominance of Twitter over Facebook, or other social networks on article pages.
