About Chris Gieger
I am a User Experience (UX) designer, speaker, tweeter and blogger. For nearly 20 years, my passion (some say 'obsession') for good design has been focused on visually communicating ideas and making things easy to use - which is what I primarily write about on my blog called "The User Experience". Today, I am the Director of User Experience at Fusionapps where we design, build and manage software for startups and enterprises.

I just revisited a tweet I posted 300+ days ago, which points out a design flaws with Facebook’s use of redundant comment buttons. They have since removed the buttons.
