Ok, so the overwhelming consensus when I took Snap off my blog a few weeks ago was that I should keep it off. I always liked it and a few other Thomas Hawk readers liked it, but the majority of people did not seem to like them.
So Snap came back with a new design for their links service and I’m going to give it another try. Under the new system in order to get a Snap window to pop open you actually have to purposely hover over a little tiny text bubble next to the link. I think that this will take care of the accidental pop ups that annoyed people so much before.
Feel free to chime in with your opinion on the new Snap and if you still find it obtrusive or if this version is a little more bearable. Either way I’m going to keep this new version on for a few weeks because I like it but will then evaluate continued feedback after that about whether I should keep them on or off.
Also note that if you really still hate the Snap feature you can disable it for both this site or any site by clicking on the little options button in the upper right hand corner of the Snap pop up window.
If anyone has any suggestions about how Snap could work even better please feel free to leave them in the comments.
