The site we're doing is a contest users enter and submit photos. It
requires users to be over 18, or if they are between 14 - 17 they
have to go through a consent flow.
I got a question from a designer about what would be better in terms
of UX for the sign up form - asking the user for:
- their age with a text input /or select, OR
- their date of birth, with 3 select fields [day, month, year]
Just wanted to get some input about your experience with this.
It was supposed to be the next big thing but it fizzled out like MMS
An important thing to note is you would have to use the speakerphone
to do video calls (unless you're always on BT headset or handsfree,
which is not true for an overwhelming majority of people) and this
compromises privacy in a big way…no one wants people nearby snooping
in on their conversations.
Would love to hear your thoughts on why it hasn't taken off yet?
I will make a post about the responses I receive and will publish them
in a few weeks for all to see (names are anonymous)
