The Importance of Feedback From a Product

The Importance of Feedback From a Product

Web Cover Episode 33 Eugen Esanu Larochefm.png

Ever watch people entering an elevator and repeatedly push the Up button? Or repeatedly push the pedestrian button at a street crossing? Or hit a refresh button many times because the loading bar keeps spinning and nothing happens?

What is missing in all these cases is feedback — some way of letting you know that what you did is working. Feedback acknowledges actions and shows results to keep people informed. In this episode I will tell you about why it is crucial for a product to have a proper feedback, when to use it and what to avoid, and other interesting stories.

You can read the full article on my Medium Blog.


Feedback is a central feature of life. The process of feedback governs how we grow, respond to stress and challenge, and regulate factors such as body temperature, blood pressure and cholesterol level. The mechanisms operate at every level, from the interaction of proteins in cells to the interaction of organisms in complex ecologies .
