The news I read is about 2018 Youth Survey from BuzzFeed.
The online delivery can be improved in the following two parts: Readability, relating to the information delivery, and functionality and usability, referring to the user experience of reading this report.
There are at least two places mentioning reports can add links to increase the credibility to the story. One link can be attached to “research released today by Mission Australia” in the second paragraph. The other one can go with “2018 Youth Survey”.
- Image size and captions
Images in the story should be smaller to avoid the impediment to fluently reading. Meanwhile, the caption should be smaller or grey and under the image, otherwise it looks like a subheading.
Charts can be added for easily reading and intuitively understanding when sets of data are mentioned in the story. (click the figure for a clear view).
Functionality & Usability
- Amplification of characters and images
The function of enlarging the characters with cursor moving, and the display of detailed picture information when click on it should be provided.
- Share buttons
The number of share buttons should be reduced to avoid the confusion and distraction led by too many buttons.
