  1. show content avail for user/viewer region instead of nothing/error

    reading article here from different country - https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/angelina-jolie-reveals-she-split-192453823.html
    the video states it's not avail in my region (ss-100-202).

    instead of showing "video not available" show content against the topic that is avail. (semantic matching based on the article and content allowed against the geo feature?). It would make for better user exp and not wasting ad opp

  6. Increase prominence of "Mail, News, Finance" etc Links

    Design looks good! It's cleaner and more modern looking than before.

    One concern: the "Mail, news, finance" etc links in the header are small and visually nondescript. This makes it harder to get to Mail, which is the top action millions of users want to take when they get to the page.

    Also, I'm not seeing any ads on the page. This looks great, but it would be good to dogfood with the real ad experience

  7. New HP feedback

    Overall, I like this new redesign - better than the current production version! That said, I do think the Ad looks too much like an article. This may increase accidental clicks; I wonder how the bounce rate looks like.

  8. Fit and finish

    Hi Team,
    Congratulations on the new design.
    It gives fresh look. I have some minor feedback items.
    1. All the elements have rounded corners, except ads. It will be great, if we can make those too.
    2. My name got cut on both sides in profile icon.
    3. Notification count disappears on hover. But no notification pop over shown.
    Reloading the page again brings the notification count.
    4. Inside the stream news articles/video articles are not having same width/height.
    Mixing them both sounds not perfect to me (just my opinion).
    May be it will be good to make them same…

  9. Closing a news article

    Looks great! When I open a news article, the "X" that floats on the right side is not intuitive. I didn't know what it would do, until I clicked and realized it closes the news article. The design probably needs to be better.

  10. grammatical error in three-dot menu

    "See Less Stories Like this" should be "See Fewer Stories Like this":

    fewer: countable items
    less: bulk or measures

  13. Spacing between elements needs tightening

    I like a lot the new cleaner look, specially the article view. However it feels like it needs a little bit more pixel tightening, the spacing between elements/modules is not consistent and makes thing feel very uneven.

    For example the spacing between the navigation below the search box is almost touching that horizontal gray line then the stream has more vertical space between articles than the modules on the right rail like "Trending Videos".

    Also not sure if its just me, but notification panel is not showing up, and the Bell doesn't have al label either.

  14. Positive overall

    I actually do like this better. It is indeed crisper. Because there's a gray screen behind the headline and tease on the main item, I might wish for very slightly larger type for the tease, or a somewhat paler gray screen, or both. Any chance we can create room for a third line of type in those thumbnails? For many stories, two lines is a severe squeeze.

  15. Background color broken

    You have a broken background color experience where the modal has a different background color - change it to the same #f0f3f5 background color on the homepage

  16. articles Look great, and the ads are not rounded

    I like the rounded corners on the articles the look really nice.

    Two things that jumped out.

    1) The ads were square, and they looked different than the rest of the page.

    2) When I scroll down, two ads poped up below the horroscope, and we should prefetch them to avoid the lag, unless you are drawsing attention to the ad :)
