Social networks: taking the law into your own hands

You begin with a text, you sculpt information, you chisel away what’s not needed, you come to the point, make things clear, add value, you’re a content person, you like words. Design is no afterthought, far from it, but it comes in a deserved second you still use lorem ipsum and rightly so, as it will always have a place in the web.

Consider this: You made all the required mock ups for commissioned layout, got all the approvals, built a tested code base or had them built, you decided on a content management system, got a license for it or adapted open source software for your client’s needs. Then the question arises: where’s the content? Not there yet?

A successful website does three things: It attracts the right kinds of visitors, guides them to the main services or product you offer and collect contact details for future ongoing relation.

That’s not so bad, there’s dummy copy to the rescue. But worse, what if the fish doesn’t fit in the can, the foot’s to big for the boot? Or to small? To short sentences, to many headings, images too large for the proposed design, or too small, or they fit in but it looks iffy for reasons the folks in the meeting can’t quite tell right now.

Design is no afterthought, far from it, but it comes in a deserved second. Anyway, you still use Lorem Ipsum and rightly so, as it will always have a place in the web workers toolbox, as things happen, not always the way you like it, not always in the preferred order. Even if your less into design and more into content strategy you may find some redeeming value with, wait for it, dummy copy, no less made all the required mock ups for commissioned layout.

      But. A big but: Lorem Ipsum is not t the root of the problem, it just shows what\’s going wrong. Chances are there wasn\’t collaboration, communication, and checkpoints, there wasn\’t a process agreed upon or specified with the granularity required.
