Bit.ly decided to change one more time, after the users complained about its new look.
Bit.ly is a site that allows you to shorten your links and is one of the most popular ones providing this service. Hence, any change would be discussed, as it happened, indeed. When Bit.ly announced last week its major changes, many users were frustrated, since it became more complicated, making them spend more time on the site, trying to find their way. Since it is a service that is supposed to be quick, it created big disruption.
That’s why Bit.ly announced today some improvements, in order to satisfy their users. From now on, pasting and shortening the link will be a little bit easier (and faster). Instead of “Add a bitmark” you now see “Paste a link here” and when you do paste a link, the new shortened version of your url is available.
As Bit.ly wrote: “We mean it when we say we’ve been reading all your tweets and emails. And we’re listening! In the week since our release, we’re already making adjustments, so that saving and shortening links in the new bitly is a whole lot easier.”
Although it is still more complex than its old time favourite version, it tries to improve and listen to the complaints of the users.
Do you use Bit.ly? Any experience on the new design?
