Content Services

Speaker: Sean Bohan
Speaker Location: New York
2 weeks since the Content Services Work Week and we are looking at the future of Enhanced Tiles for the New Tab. Currently, users see Tiles which consist of a screenshot of that page, some text under each of the tiles. Users have the ability to move a tile, leave it alone or remove it from their New Tab. Our team is looking at giving the users the ability to add "Format" to that list of actions, letting them change tiles from a screenshot to something that is either more functional or just looks better. Right now ideas include magazine and news tiles that can show most recent headlines on top of Tile. Sites given the able to update the Tile image to latest logo or seasonal doodle. At the July 21 MoCo, Aaron Thornburg (UX lead for Content Services), will show a demo of where this could go.
